Depressions Effects on Relationships

As you will see, inattention to depression’s toxic effects on relationships can worsen a depression and leave you and your relationship vulnerable to other problems. For example, research has shown that the severity of depression worsens when there is tension in the depressed person’s relationships, that people closest to a depressed person are more vulnerable to various disorders themselves, and that marriages in which one member is depressed are nine times more likely to end in divorce.
