Fabulous article. I loved the not peeing example. When we were anywhere in public, if I went to pee, he would disappear, just abandon me. I would come out, and he'd be long gone. Passive aggressive jerk. I was left hanging, knowing that if I went looking for him or left the spot that there would be hell to pay. I felt so pathetic. So... I held it. On long bicycle rides through the French countryside, I held it or made him stop so I could go in the bushes. Then, he hung around.
