It's likely your love relationship started in an unexpected, even startling way. Was one of you swept off his or her feet? Perhaps one of you even broke off another relationship to make way for this new, thrilling love.
But decisions have repercussions, and yours are still lingering. There may be another person in your relationship (a child? an ex?) who's causing tension. Three's a crowd, they say, and you couldn't agree more. But asking your spouse to always side with you seems unfair, even cruel. You want to be the one on top, the one who always wins, but your mate's divided loyalties make that impossible.Though your automatic response is to ditch the drama and head out on your own, the two of you are well-placed for growth if you can weather your hard patches. Much of the problem can be solved by you alone. Stop making everything a power struggle. See situations for what they are -- arguments over small things, not grand battles for the ultimate victory. Your partner feels henpecked by your demands; stop making them. If you can stop pushing so hard, your mate wouldn't have to resist so fiercely.
