Rarely if ever let your partner make decisions. A male client claimed that he trusted his wife’s judgment, but every time she offered an idea, he shot it down. On some occasions he told her that her suggestion was “downright stupid;” sometimes he simply vetoed them. While some partners refrain from interfering with their partner’s decisions, they might consistently badger him/her with detailed questions regarding the viability of the decision. This conveys the message: “I let you have your way but I think I just took a big risk by doing so.” Hardly confidence building.
