My parents are one of those couples who have to do EVERYTHING together! There are exceptions such as shopping or running errands, but on whole they won’t spend a night apart and heaven forbid if they’re going to travel without the other person.
Most times I find this cute; it makes me feel like they’ve got a strong bond and really enjoy each others company, but at times I find co-dependency very strange.
Over the New Year break, I called my father to discuss visiting family friends on a camping trip. Emma and I decided not to but I urged Dad to pop into the camp site and say hello. He responded with “I cannot, you’re Mother is working!” Surely Dad, you can drive there sit for a beer and lunch without her then? Dad response was “if your mother found out I went without her it would lead to divorce!”
I fell over in laughter! The thought of mother divorcing father over a trip to see friends is ridiculous. Dad obviously wasn’t serious about the divorce thing but clearly the argument would be one that you would want to avoid. A bit excessive? I think so…
How co-dependent is your relationship? Are you allowed out on your own, maybe a boys / girls night out? Do you do everything together as a couple, have the same friends and social circles or rather keep things a little separate?
