She's got you!: No doubt, this will not be an easy life but it can be of good quality and by some definitions even full. Being scared is fair. Try to find a supportive therapy. The various lupus fdtns might have referral lists for family groups, couple therapists, etc. With support you both might have a very wonderful experience learning and loving. Duration may not be a good measure of "full". My very best 2u2.
