I have often been struck by the observation that mental health professionals get divorced at least as often as the general population. When I talk to them about their ex-spouses, they usually describe their exes as personality disordered. Mental health professionals are supposed to be adept at quickly diagnosing problems. Yet we can date someone for months and even years and not realize that they’re personality disordered until after the wedding!
