@dymphna Thats a curious thought. If i recall right, your parent model of a partnership is really turbulent and unbalanced. Could that possibly be a part of it?
Did he say anything particularly positive? Do you find you have fun , find n ew ideas, new approaches to old things? I was in a really stagnant relationship for six years. It did have its abusive bits but was otherwise meh/neutral.
Now thet I'm in a very positive partnership i can totes see the difference.
