How Does Destructive Entitlement Sabotage Restoration for Both Spouses? The foundations of any healthy, life-giving marriage or long-lasting relationship are built in humility, compassion and self-sacrifice, (just to name a few). The antithesis of these is something called “destructive entitlement.” Believe it or not, after the disclosure of infidelity or addiction, one or both spouses can feel destructively entitled to various ways of handling the pain, trauma, and of course, perceived abandonment and rejection. The truth is, most marriages can be saved after this life-altering disclosure. The other half of that truth is that not all spouses are willing to do what it takes to see the marriage or relationship healed and restored. When a spouse or partner falls into the trap of destructive entitlement, the foundation of repair work crumbles rapidly. For restoration to thrive after infidelity, both parties must focus on their own self-care, while also doing work to care for the marriage. While an uphill climb, it is not an impossible climb. When we can identify and confront these instances of destructive entitlement, the relationship inherently gains positive momentum and potential for long-term salvation.
