Though we are bound to marry the wrong person, there are two kinds of wrong people. Wrong people with whom a happy life can be made and wrong people with whom a great mistake is made. Across twenty-eight years of clinical practice, scores of regretful clients have talked about ignoring intuitions or, worse, refusing to acknowledge one or more of the big six red flags.
Red flags mean stop! Test your misgivings against this list: Substance abuse/dependence, mental cruelty, battery, inappropriate venting of anger, controlling behavior/jealousy/paranoia and under-functioning/under-responsibility. Although each probably deserves a post of its own, all six are briefly addressed in two posts - Part 1 and Part 2.
