When should you make decisions for your partner in a relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

Though telling your partner what to do is rarely a sign of a healthy relationship, there are some instances where you should let it happen:

1. During pregnancy: Take a cue from Mariah Carey and let your beau dote on you while you’re pregnant.  If that means listening when he tells you lie down or if it means changing your clothing style, listen up!  Keep in mind it’s his child, too, and he only wants what’s best for you both.

2. In the hospital: If you’re really sick and in the hospital, chances are you aren’t thinking clearly.  Let your partner, who surely has your best interests at heart, help you make your medical decisions.  Try to remember that your sickness may be messing with your decision making skills.

3. When you’re drained: Sometimes when you get home from work, you’re completely drained of energy.  But you haven’t seen your partner all day and he/she wants to spend some quality time together!  That’s fine and all, but give him the power to make decisions for the evening.  It’ll relieve the mental stress of coming up with which movie to watch or what to make for dinner.  There’s nothing wrong with taking a break!
