Currently, in my work I deal with cases when one of the partners leaves home to live with his lover, but after some time decides to return. How long does it take for them to come back? I would like to point out that I am based on my own therapeutic experiences.
The time span is very large: from a few days to many years! It’s time to analyze the reasons for returning, I will limit myself to the most common ones.
The sadness of a fairy tale come true
This results from the scenario of living as a couple based on desire, pleasant meetings creating the illusion that this celebration will last forever. Sometimes the other person announces that “with me you will feel like in paradise.”
Another reason is the idealization of lovers. Currently, there is a fashion for describing relationships with a psychopathic personality. There’s something going on.
