K.Selvaj mentioned,’ throughout their younger years, visually challenged people dedicate a great deal of time learning how to adapt in order enjoy the same independence as sighted people do. As they grow, their family grows with them, and learns how to adjust their own attitudes as their loved one continues to gain independence. Marriage for a visually   challenged person is just like any other, caring and commitment to make sure that both partner’s needs and desires are met. By the time a visually challeged person reaches the point where they are ready to commit to marriage, they have most likely become accustomed to the disability and comfortable in finding the way most situations alone. It is difficult to then merge this world with a sighted person, but not impossible. By indulging the need to help, the sighted partner will learn faster just how capable their blind spouse is”.-Govin
