Title: How Adult Acquired Hearing Loss Affects Marital Satisfaction
Author: Speegle, Martha Gayle
Abstract: Hearing loss can adversely affect a marital relationship when a person becomes deafened after the marriage or commitment to cohabitate. This population is growing more quickly than hearing loss professionals had anticipated. Scores of military personnel are returning from deployment with permanent hearing loss. Loud music and environmental noise are rapidly taking their toll on the Baby Boomer generation and those following them.This paper discusses the problems that hearing loss imposes on relationship: Lack of counseling services, grief and loss, intimacy, crisis, co-morbidity, communication, careers, abuse, dependence and co-dependence.
