It Makes Her Lose Respect For You
Trust is broken by pushing our point of view onto another, by violating their boundaries, spoken and unspoken and by not accepting their parenthood. Once we have violated another, we’ve broken their trust. It is natural for wives to withdraw into a shell of protectiveness, often developing feelings of bitterness, and this breaks healthy connection. A wife wants to feel like she’s meeting your expectations, but if she feels like she’s being set up for failure instead, trouble is on the way. If you keep asking for the impossible, you can quickly lose all of her respect. It is critical that we talk about what we need to feel respected, how others violate these boundaries, and how you can work together to rebuild respect.
