Male entitlement wreaking havoc on relationships

In his book “Making Love, Playing Power,” psychologist Ken Dolan-DelVechio suggests that the main problem in relationships is the imbalance and misuse of power. He suggests that men suffer form an attitude of “male entitlement” and this wreaks havoc on relationships as well as the less entitled partner. He defines entitlement as: “the pattern in which we men prioritize and enact our thoughts, feelings and desires without adequately consulting or even considering the implications for those closest to us, and, in most cases without even noticing that we are behaving in this fashion. In other words, it is blind disregard for the inconsiderate nature of our pattern of choices.” (Dolan-DelVechio, p 23)
