Freedom in the marriage
A successful marriage incorporates the personal freedom each partner has to enjoy moments and activities they love – but obviously, always being responsible not to do anything that could be unhealthy for the marriage or that disrespects the partner.
In an unhealthy marriage, there are restraint, possessiveness and severe insecurity. One partner interprets every activity that the other wants to enjoy alone as neglect, “If you loved me, you wouldn’t trade me for football with your friends.” “I don’t allow my wife to go to the movies with her friends.”
There can be no love without freedom, but freedom cannot be used for selfish purposes or to disrespect the partner.
