"The one who loves the least, controls the relationship"

- Robert Anthony

About this Quote

This quote by Robert Anthony recommends that in a relationship, the individual who likes the least has the most control. This could indicate that the individual who loves the least has the ability to dictate the terms of the relationship, as they are not as mentally invested as the other person. This might cause an imbalance of power in the relationship, as the person who loves the least is able to make decisions without considering the feelings of the other individual. This might result in a situation where someone is constantly trying to please the other, while the other person is not making any effort to reciprocate. Eventually, this quote suggests that in order to have a healthy relationship, both celebrations must be equally invested and ready to compromise.
