What is the marriage success rate for people with bipolar disorder?

My fiance has bipolar disorder and I would like to know what our chances are at marriage.

Unfortunately, the success rate is only 10%. The best thing you can do is to try to understand bipolar disorder by researching it. Be patient with your fiance since he/she probably has many mood swings and this can be challenging for a newly married couple.

While this may come as a shock, 90% of marriages where one of the spouses has bipolar don't succeed. This is a staggering statistic. Often in bipolar marriages one of the partner's in the marriage experiences mania, depression, and other psychological stresses that are hard on a marriage.

I would say just as much success rate as any other couple as long as your fiance takes his meds.
