IB = "Independent Behavior." It's one of the Love Busters.

Thanks, I just found that. I thought it meant "Immature Behavior" at first but, then again, they are often one and the same.

If you are serious about saving your marriage, you can't get it all on this forum. You've got to listen to the Marriage Builders Radio show, every day. Install the app!

It could, but isn't often used on this site.

Perhaps you've seen "POJA" which is the "Policy of Joint Agreement," Dr Harley's recommendation for marital negotiation.

Some wives have reconciled with their husbands after one or both of them have engaged in an affair. Yet the wife refers to her husband as DH. What gives?
