Why do we ignore it when people do some things to us but get so upset when our spouses do the same things? Do we expect so much from them; expect them to know us enough to know that that would hurt us or what?!
It is however expected that the one closest to you hurts you more and most often too. Take for instance my husband’s often reference to the tongue and teeth, they are the closest to each other, cannot function effectively without each other, yet the teeth hurts the tongue more than any other part of the body, and often too, even though the teeth should know the tongue other extremely well. The hands or any other part of the body hardly hurt the tongue, even if they do, it would not be as painful as when it gets bitten by the tongue. It is no different between man and wife, since they are closely knit in marriage, and supposedly closer to each other than anybody else.
