Another user said, “Making long Facebook posts about how much my partner means to me. I don’t know why, but I find public displays like this cringe for myself. I don’t care if other people do this, but I don’t like putting my relationships on display on social media to that level.”

Staying At Home

Being Responsible

A Redditor shared, “I’m not sure if it’s weird or I am, but taking responsibility for my partner. For example, their emotions, their debts, or the problems they’ve created for themselves. I get caring about a person and wanting to take care of them, but to me, that’s something you do because you care, not because they’ve abdicated responsibility.”

One Redditor said, “Location trackers on phones. I get some couples use it to track location for other reasons than because they’re suspicious, such as to gauge when to start dinner, make sure they’re ok if they’re running late, etc., but to me, it screams, “I don’t trust you and need to see where you are.”

Marriage Traditions
