    Just by the title alone I wanted to ask the question:

    Is being in a relationship all about power to some people?

    I mean, we've all heard people say the title statement before.... but why? Shouldn't a relationship be about equality?

    It should, but when do people do what they should , Jeff? Besides, I think what is being refered to as power is actually control. When someone gives you their favor if you have so allowed them their decision to be reciprocal or not affects you so in a way they have power . As for how much power that really is up to you. However many people do not take the responsibility to realize this...

    How about not saying I love you? Surely you have more power than saying it back?
