When Anger is Caused Mostly by One partner’s Issues

In some relationships, the anger is much more the contribution of one partner than the other. In these cases, the angry partner has a history of anger problems, especially in relationships. They would have anger problems no matter who they were married to or who they were with. They often have hair anger triggers, they are defensive, and explode (or withdraw) with the least amount of “push-back” by their partner. They never take responsibility for themselves, they are often self-entered, and they almost always see their partners as the sole cause of their life misery. Frequently partners of these folks remark that it is like “walking on eggshells” for them on a daily basis.
