It is up to the clinician to expose the rationalization. It is a difficult clinical discernment to make because most couples do not fall in love at the same time at the same rate, and past relationships may not get much talk time in psychotherapy. We need to have this subtle courtship pathology in our minds in order to identify those who 28 L OV E P R O B L E M S M A N I F E S T E D D U R I N G C O U RT S H I P reject and flee rather than face their fears of attachment. We need to be willing to give the patient the benefit of the doubt that he or she is not completely aware of the motives for the recurrent rejection of partners.

We need to be willing to give the patient the benefit of the doubt that he or she is not completely aware of the motives for the recurrent rejection of partners. We would like to assume that two people vet one another during courtship on a level playing field that allows love to blossom into commitment if each wholeheartedly accepts the other. This, however, is not always the case. The natural history of falling in love is not necessarily a lifetime commitment. There are those who never want to marry, don’t believe in it, don’t believe they are suited for it, don’t want to ever do it again, or are not ready to settle down.
