Yesterday in Gate-keeping is Self Destructive I said, “Gate-keeping creates a power struggle, with each spouse fighting for control or feeling wronged for having control taken from them.

Control issues are a common problem in marriages, and they, or what spouses do in response to them, can destroy a marriage.

The desire to be in control is a part of all of us. We see it in babies just a few months old, and if we fail to deal with it in our children, they will grow up to be selfish and miserable.

Are control issues – yours, hers, or both, making your marriage miserable? I will pontificate on control this week. Why not do a bit of thinking today on the role control plays in your marriage?
