Question
If your Spouse/Partner calls you a thief & there is absolutely no truth to her accusation , Is it normal to expect an Apology & if Not, How does one deal with being called a Lowly thief ???

Answer
Hi Karen,

It's absolutely normal to expect an apology as and when the other person realises that name calling isn't ok in a relationship.  But instead of waiting for that thought to sink in, it's best to confront the individual.  Explain your feelings and your stand, why wait for something when it's bothering you?
