Acts of Defiance

When a person has chosen to make a commitment to another, their duty to the relationship is not necessarily to spend all their time pleasing the other person. While they should not be expected to be bound by the limitations of the other person in matters of socialization, keeping in mind the needs of that person is important. Acts of defiance can ruin a relationship, so forcing a spouse with less of a need to endure weekly or monthly parties at their home can become an issue.

There is no limit on the amount of times a couple can host a party, but those who do so must be prepared for the work and expense it entails. If one person does not have the means to support this activity on a regular basis, defying them by inviting people over all the time can lead to the end of the relationship due to concerns about money, being overworked, or a spouse forcing them to associate with people too much.
