Tip: whole and resolved

When a person is not emotionally whole and resolved, they run a serious risk when starting a relationship: making their partner their everything.

Denying love

  I WAS A MANIPULATOR in my own marriage. Whenever Cristiane upset me, I’d deny her any kind of affection. I’d keep silent, I’d avoid eye contact, I wouldn’t touch her, and I’d try living my life as if I didn’t need her. That was the silent treatment. My goal was to make her eat […]

Love and control

  Love cannot thrive in an environment of control. Few things bring more stress into a relationship than one’s attempts to have control over their partner.

What did I do?

  Every time I gave Cristiane the silent treatment, it was because I didn’t know how to deal with the anger over something she’d done.

Proactive Partner vs. Passive Partner

  With most couples, one is usually the proactive and the other is the passive. A passive partner’s complacency and delay in making decisions/taking action frustrate a proactive one. A passive partner relies on their active partner to take the initiative and often feels frustrated because the other one got ahead of them. The constant […]

Love and choice

To love is a choice, a decision that does not depend on external pressure. I can’t love someone if I don’t have a choice. To love is to be able to choose any other person I want and yet decide to be with only one; it’s to be free to do whatever I want and […]

Money is NOT synonymous with a happy marriage

  In the past, men used to think that bringing money home and putting food on the table were enough to make them great husbands. In many cases, the result of that was that their wives felt excluded, diminished and seen only as mothers and housewives. Nowadays, many women, in pursuit of financial independence and […]
