For instance, if the person slows down or quits drinking excessively. Is it right for others to criticize the persons spouse and shun them? Are they justified in feeling upset?
Or, if a person becomes less outgoing than they used to be in the past.
I don't think it is right to blame anyone for someone else's actions. That person makes the decision to change. When I met my husband he was way more outgoing. Now we are more like hermits. Well it's not that bad, but we do love being home. I am sure many of his friends do blame me for him not coming around anymore though. I didn't tell him he couldn't go around them or go out, he just chooses to hang out with me instead.
