2013/08/26 ~ Your Spouse Is Not Your Child

couples-holding-hands-at-beachI have seen many couples over time with one acting subordinate and one acting like a parent. I am always confused when I observe people in this situation. I also always ask myself why and how does a relationship, that when entered into is supposed to be of equality, end up this way. Is this a problem that one or both of the people in the relationship are still dealing with from previous relationships or from childhood?

This should be an early sign of a problem in a relationship if you see your significant other start to act peculiar as either dominates or subordinate. This person must ask why this person is acting this way to them and how they got attracted to someone who has these characteristics. If you find yourself being subordinate or dominate you need to ask for help from counseling before you proceed in a relationship or any others in your future – if you don’t it will doom your expectations for a healthy relationship.
