Are Modern Day Relationship Standards To High?


Professor of social psychology at Northwestern University, Eli Finkel, says it's no longer enough to marry a nice-enough man or woman  - people are expecting their partners to be everything to them.

In his new book, The All-or-Nothing Marriage, Dr Finkel says in order to have a happy relationship we need to ask less from this person and think of ways in which our friendships could give us more. 

  • People expect their partners to be everything to them, which is often impossible 
  • We should start re-calibrating and decreasing the amount we ask of our partner
  • Instead, we should look to our friends for psychological and emotional support
  • These comments are from Dr Eli Finkel, author of The All-or-Nothing Marriage
