Chris and Gisela have been partners for 12 years. When Chris was diagnosed with AS, Gisela had to come to terms with a marriage in which there would never be an intuitive understanding despite Chris's good intentions. It was the beginning of a long process of learning to live with a disability regarded by some as incompatible with marriage
