Thinking about my friend “M”. She apparently hates her husband. I’ve even heard her tell him she’ll be happy when he dies. If you hate someone so vengefully why are you married to them? I think a lot of what it is comes down to is bitterness and anger that goes unresolved. When relationships don’t turn out the way people want they react kind of like you might react if you got scammed out of a huge sum of money. Marriage is a pretty big deal. When we get married it’s like investing everything we’ve got into something we expect will add significant value to our lives, so when things don’t turn out the way we expect we don’t tend to take it lightly.
