Understanding the motivations of those who may threaten a love relationship is one thing. Common motives are described here. Identifying behaviors through which those motives are expressed is a separate task. To review a list of behaviors that can undermine the integrity of a couple, create conflict within it, or derail one partner with resulting damage to the couple relationship, read my post from “Life, Refracted” on PsychologyToday.com by clicking here.
Excellent article about a subject that challenges all couples at one time or another, but seems to be seldom written or talked about.
Thank you, Cheryl. The post before it listed some of their possible motivations and that one that will appear after it suggest possible ways to deal with the threats…Yes, it is important. I do hope these thoughts are helpful!
