I am 48 and dyslexic. My dyslexia almost cost me my marriage and I must admit that it can still cause some challenges but then again, plenty of things in life do.
I can so relate to the messy house. It's not that she want's it that way - it's just that it is harder for her and if she is as bad as I was she probably thinks that it is impossible. After a while you tell yourself that it just doesn't matter but it is because you get so worn out. The truth is that it really does.
I really can relate to how hard this is for you. You guys have a big advantage in the fact that at least you know that your girlfriend is dyslexic. My hubby and I did not so I got zero support and it caused a lot of resentment.
Anyway bottom line, support, support, support. Not just for your girlfriend but for both of you. I found a heap of support through www.flylady.net. This website will teach you and your wife simple steps to take to simply manage a clean and tidy house and have more time and rescourses to enjoy the family. Definately worth a try.
