1-Respect of the other. This quote tells it best.

A frog sitting on the handle of a saucepan, which is sitting on an electric hob, which is glowing red.

A frog sitting on a saucepan handle
The boiling frog is a fable describing a frog being slowly boiled alive.
The premise is that if a frog is put suddenly into boiling water, it will jump out,
but if the frog is put in tepid water which is then brought to a boil slowly, it will
not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. The story is often used as
a metaphor for the inability or unwillingness of people to react to or be aware of
sinister threats that arise gradually rather than suddenly.

I'm sure i've heard this before, but maybe in different form. I do like this quote though. My question to you is, as you say 'Respect of the other'. I'm not quite sure what the quote has to do with respect of the other. Are you saying that her having these relationships with other men, is just the little signs of bigger problems? And that problem being she does not respect me? If so, I get that and can see how the quote applies to that.

Thank you for your thoughts and advice, and certainly the quote!
