Is it wrong to punish someone who you love who hurt you so that he learns not to do it again?

So you can have a happier relationship in the long run?

    That depends on what the punishment is, which you didn't say.  It also depends on the crime being punished, which you also didn't say.

    Example:  Freezing your man out of the bedroom for a few nights because he went out drinking with the boys and missed your dinner date is a reasonable punishment.

    Other Example:  Setting the bedroom on fire while he's sleeping because he left the toilet seat up is not a reasonable punishment.

    See where I'm going with this?  Without any context, you may as well have asked how long is a piece of string.

    Great idea. Just like training a dog. You have a warped view of relationships. Partnerships based on reciprocal punishment are doomed to fail.
