I've found this story which looks like a more positive one from an NT woman who got married to an AS man. It looks a lot better than some other ones I've seen. Some of the comments to this article are unbelievably hateful though:

What do you guys think?

Noticed that the comments are nearly all filled with ads for "love spells" and the like. Makes it really funny and a little difficult to find real comments. A few comments suggest another "love spell" while calling others a scam.

commenter by the name of istillmissDennis seems to insist that all Aspies are the same. Cynical and depressing. "My aspie husband wasn't capable of making me happy. Therefore no Aspie is capable."

Yes, istillmissDenis made some utterly nasty comments. The very first comment that appears, written by someone named Donna is pretty nasty too.

Yeah, the comments make aspies look like deceitful burdens. :?

People can really suck

Not so much of a surprise actually. Those people who like to rant and complain on forums like the ASPartners forum always tend to show up to comment on positive articles like that.

My post was sarcasm. I know all too well how stupid people are for no apparent reason.

If they're gonna be cynical, they could at least be reasonably cynical, like me. :x
