Double standard love may be an oxymoron considering the biblical attributes of love; however, this is an aspect of relationships (be it platonic or otherwise) to which I say I am allergic. Just the same, I am curious to know if I am being petty because many people consider double standards as normal.
There is one in particular where one mate freely visits frends of the opposite sex, but questions the mate who may also visit friends of the opposite. The impasse occurs when the mate who questions is offended and defensive against any attempt to simply talk about the issue.
Mind you, no accusations are made, but the intent to discuss is taken as an implication of being accused of cheating. Seeing that communication is key to a healthy relationship, there is conern this double-standard-discomfort will be the thorn of the relationship.
In light of an old saying, "everybody tolerates something in a relationship," I would like another viewpoint before making my decision to set aside the issue.
