Look, I don't know your sister-in-law, and perhaps I would share your opinion that there's nothing wrong with her that living on her own and therapy couldn't dating a retarded woman.
I suppose that's part of the attraction, and yes, they mostly seemed happy together. She lives with her parents, doesn't drive and doesn't seem to socialize much.
I work with that population as a therapist so I like to just point it out when I can: Fundamentally, there's nothing wrong with her. Would have to be a pretty light disorder, like OCD or something.

If it works for the two of them, there's nothing wrong with it. Schizophrenia is not a permanent state, so it wouldn't be analogous. And here I was thinking it was some nice term meaning she's unique or something haha.
