Choosing open adoption - "Because that's how I'd want it if I was adopted" - and how it works out over the years

Infantilizing your spouse is no laughing matter, TV commercial supermoms!

Something bothered me about the commercial where a woman said it was her job to keep her husband from leaving the house in pajamas, but I didn't know what it was until Bonnie Algera put her finger on it:

"Really? That's not his job? Did you ever think that infantilizing your spouse is why you feel like you are responsible for everything on earth and can't catch a break?"

That is at the root of so many problems in people's marriages. It's also a problem to be the kind of person who would do that, but it doesn't help that we're in a culture that encourages it.
