Understanding Defensive Behavior: Why does my partner become defensive when questioned about past relationships?

Answer from our relationship expert:

Approach the situation with empathy and curiosity, seeking to understand underlying reasons for your partner's defensiveness and exploring potential triggers or insecurities related to past experiences, fostering open dialogue and emotional support to address underlying concerns.

Foster a safe and non-judgmental space for your partner to express feelings and concerns, validating their emotions and experiences while also setting boundaries and expectations for respectful communication, while also considering professional guidance or counseling to navigate sensitive topics and promote mutual understanding and trust.
