The Journal Of Best Practices
There comes a time in every marriage when many wives begin to wonder “What the heck is wrong with my husband’s brain?!”
But in 2008, Kristen Finch took it a step further: she took her husband David by the hand and walked him through a 200-question analysis that, as she predicted, diagnosed him with Asperger Syndrome. Suddenly David’s egocentricity, odd and often repetitive behaviors, and driving focus on particular topics made perfect sense. But that didn’t make him easier to live with.
Kristen and David’s marriage was in crisis, but rather than giving up or calling it quits, David began taking notes on his behavior and how to change it, in what would ultimately become his Journal of Best Practices.
