Just doing some research on double standard behavior, My

Customer Question

just doing some research on double standard behavior
JA: The Psychologist will know what to do. Please tell me everything you can so the Psychologist can help you best.
Customer: My wife slammed the door and called me a bastard and yelled at me because she was mad about me having a stranger in the house while she still had on pajamas neck to ankle covered but personal preference. I responded in kind this was after the ac man stepped outside. She feels that calling her a bitch and saying hurtful things in response at that same moment that she was yelling at me and saying hurtful things was worse and I crossed a line. I can't really wrap my head around this as I feel it is equally bad for spouses to yell curse etc with one another. So just doing some research on it.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Psychologist should know?
Customer: nah
JA: Our top Psychologist is ready to take your case. Just pay the $5 fully refundable deposit and I'll fill the Psychologist in on everything we've discussed. You can go back and forth with the Psychologist until you're 100% satisfied. We guarantee it.

I agree that this is a double standard. And I further agree that it is equally bad. Name-calling and yelling, in particular, are behaviors that will erode a relationship very quickly. It could also escalate to domestic violence. I would suggest that marriage counseling might be of benefit for you both. Purposely saying hurtful things is a sign of worse things to come, if not handled appropriately.
