Common Areas Of Expectation Problems
There are several areas where our expectations can create problems. The first is expectations with in-laws; how often family will get together, holidays and level of grandparent involvement to name a few. Expectations can create problems in a sexual relationship in many ways. The third is companionship expectations or how you will spend time together and how much. Another is parenting expectations. This can be vastly different for each spouse from parental involvement to mother working in or out of the home.
