Forgetting that decisions once made for one must now be made for two, as a prime example. This is particularly true if you have been on your own for a number of years, used to doing your own thing, only answering to yourself. Believing that your partner should be able to read your mind. He or she doesn’t and shouldn’t be expected to. Don’t expect them to know what you need, how you feel about something, then get angry when they don’t.
