Differentiation failures (not separating one’s essential self from one’s actions, attitudes, beliefs, minor characteristics, property, and family) are prime contributors to couple conflict early on in most romantic relationships, but most acutely in the relationships of children of unhappy marriages. These romantic partners tend to equate agreement with love, and disagreement with its absence. Not being complimented on a new article of clothing, having one’s views of family life, music, politics, or religion challenged, or being criticized for some behavioral transgression, all feel like assaults upon one’s self-esteem to the insecure person with an idealized view of love.

As a result, they are all too willing to take on more than their share of responsibility for the anger and frustrations of intimate others. As children they reasoned that if they were better behaved, their parents wouldn’t be so angry. Similarly, in their adult romantic relationships, they reason that they should have been nicer, even when they played no part in their partner’s anger. Excessive self-blaming often becomes their modus operandi. In John (fifty) and Catherine’s (forty-seven) case, John’s anger was clearly a function of his job loss and inability to find another comparable position.

The forgetful partner could be experiencing anxiety, depression, or a harried lifestyle. The man who is irresponsible about household chores could also be depressed about his professional status, could be physically ill, or too immature to comprehend family responsibilities. The cold wife may feel too vulnerable to show much affection, or too worried about her parents’ deteriorating health. The woman who can’t cook might have no interest or skills in this area and be unaware of the impact this failing has upon her spouse.
