Familiarity breeds consent. Oscar Wilde

Familiarity breeds consent.
- Oscar Wilde

Read today's quote carefully. Wilde's saying is a play-on-words on the old saw "Familiarity breeds contempt."

It is a human tendency to put up with emotional abuse from those we know well that if done by a stranger would have us calling 911. Ask yourself whether you tolerate behaviors by a spouse or someone else close to you merely out of familiarity and habit.
