If husband says if i have her no one else can have then what's wrong with it? She should feel proud of such husband. Its ture that possessiveness should not hamper one's freedom.
And if she leaves him, will he come after her? Threaten her for looking at anyone else (even without lust?). A wife is not a possession, to be possesive of, she is a person, and a PARTNER. My wife is not an item, nor would I ever treat her as one.
Yeah exactly a husband can't treat his wife as an item, rather a lively relationship between the spouses remain vibrant as long as the individual freedom and identity is retained, for which both have to understand the significance of their roles.
Then possessiveness is the wrong word to use, as for me, it merely conjures up abusive controlling relationships. Maybe I misunderstood your original question.
Thanks jlpark for a realistic reply, you are right possessiveness has some negative elements in it, but to express the same we have less powerful terms, anyway it means a caring and loving attitude
thanks for the response deecoleworld, what if a wife looks at the possessive attitude of her husband as a protective layer for her status and dignity?
well if she does then it works out for both of you!!! still it is a slippery slope
Ha ha nice comment deecole...i think the only thing that binds both is intense love for each other else the relationship gets an artificial touch of various negative traits.
