We all pass through a period in our relationship when we face several ups and downs in life with our partners. Overprotective-ness is something many brushes aside as being overtly ‘loving’ and ‘caring’. But more often than not, the overprotective partners don’t realize the problems they are creating in their relationship. Someone who is in love with an overprotective spouse generally feels suffocated and caged – and sooner or later they would look out to break free. The situation can even arrive after marriage or before when you are in courtship with your loved one. Most of the people these days are broad-minded and handle all types of bondings casually, while on the other hand, many people keep their partners as secret, for the mere purpose of protecting them from any one’s evil eyes.
