It goes on to say that some marriages have been improved by wives gaining an understanding of how their husbands are mentally defective. Here is an example:
"She'll say something about how terrible her clothes look," Mr. Jorgensen explains. "I'll say, `Yes, honey, those are terrible-looking clothes,' when really she's wanting some affirmation that her clothes don't look terrible."
This is really wacky. It is the wife who is confused about whether she wants an opinion or a compliment, and who lacks basic communication skills. Diagnosing autism in kids is a big fad, and now it seems to be spreading to adults. The movie Rain Man did not help, as it was a truly terrible movie.
