Alright, we are looking at specific ways,specific reasons in which relationships deteriorate. The next one we want to talk about is thirdparty. You know, you’ve heard the phrase twos company, threes a crowd, well that’s whathappens here. Now, when we talk about third party we’re talking about bringing someoneelse into the relationship. Now, the first thing that you probably think of is spousesor girlfriends or boyfriends or intimate sexual relationships and we cheat on each other.That is definitely third party involvement, but it doesn’t always have to be sexual. Itcan be you start to hang out with somebody different, because what third party involvementis all about is that one person’s needs
are not getting met anymore. So, they haveto seek elsewhere to get those needs met and maybe it’s not all of their needs maybe it’sjust some of their needs. So, all of a sudden where you two were hanging out every Fridaynight together or you two were hanging out every weekend together now all the suddenI want to go hang out with Jim. Well, I think I’ll go out with Sally on Saturday instead,because you need that you need to have those needs met. That’s what third party involvementis. So, if somebody starts becoming involved in your relationship that’s definitely a signthat needs are not being met somewhere..
