Expectations and withdrawal from partner puts relationship at risk

New Delhi, Jan 08 (ANI): If you tend to go into your shell following an argument with your partner, or have expectations from them, you may hurt your relationship, claims a new study. The two are the most common types of disengagement in relationships, and both can be harmful, but in different ways and for different reasons.Withdrawal does not necessarily influence whether a couple can resolve a conflict, but expecting or hoping the other person will be a mind reader and has a direct influence on the couple's ability to settle the issue.The research showed that individuals were more likely to report withdrawal if they were bored or apathetic. Meanwhile, those who expected a partner to know what is wrong without being told are anxious and feeling neglected rather than threatened. Jan 8, 2015
