In brief: Not exactly sure

What you are asking.
Are you talking about one member in the relationship having depression? Are you referring to the relationship being damaging and leading to depression? If a relationship were that damaging - would examine if one should stay in it. If one member is depressed - be supportive, but set limits so you don't become engulfed in the other person's lows.
