What about your partner's parents rubbed off?

Air Date: 07/26/12 Fights about one another's families are destructive fights and usually it isn't possible to prove that the family did or did not have the effect on the other person you are claiming.  For example, your wife's mother was overly critical of her father, so your wife is overly critical of you.  Your husband's father cheated on his wife, so your husband will cheat on you.  There is no way to confirm if your opinion is right.  Just as bad is arguing over the past.  What really happened in families and why it happened? It can't be proved and even if it could, to what purpose?  The past can't be changed.  This week on Relationships, Dr. Jankovich suggests if you're arguing over family dynamics to stop.  Listen in to more suggestions from Dr. Jankovich Thursday mornings on 88.7 FM, KUNR, and she can be reached at 775-322-1839.
