Whoa, Momma

Your first attraction to your spouse might trace from some resemblance to your parent or your sister, for instance… Thus sexual advances and attentions which would have been improper with the original figure may carry guilt because of the transference… The barriers to incest rear up between you and your somewhat mother-like or father-like spouse.

You can help your spouse to achieve  a separate  image of you in several ways. Try to please him in your own way instead of falling into the family patterns. Cook your own way instead of getting his mother’s recipes, for instance… Set styling of your hair, clothing and so on to emphasize differences of similarities between yourself and close family figures.

    I”M SORRY, but “your first attraction to your spouse might trace from some resemblance to your parent or your sister” and “try to please him in your own way instead of falling into the family patterns” are WRONG when put together. Now if you’ll pardon me, I have to go wash my brain out with soap and then turn to neither my Mother nor Lover for comfort because THIS IS SOME BUSTER BLUTH SHIT and THAT IS GROSS.

    So as long as I don’t dress or do my hair like a 50-something woman, I should be ok right? RIGHT?!

    Does likening a gentlemen friend, when in an argument, to offsrping, count, i.e. “If I wanted a 2-year-old I’d have one!”?

    also, ugh.
