In brief: Depends
30's spouse queries whether he/she might live a "normal" life with a spouse with fibromyalgia (FM).
All depends on one's own view of "normal life". Certainly physical participation by spouse with FM will be limited. Household services will need to be found elsewhere. Best to change spousal lives to maximize wellness, aquatherapy, gentle yoga, massages, cannabis, mindfulness therapy, & nutrition.
