Or a mother is constantly on the kids because she has certain expectations but the family feels that she’s just being mean and slowly pushes the family away. One of the partners is constantly upset because he wants to save money so that he can make his spouse’s dreams come true, such as surprise dinners, romantic getaways, and eventually a nice ring but the spouse is constantly spending money.
