When ultimatums are given is the issuer generally regarded as a manipulator who wants to hopefully drive a relationship in a direction that one party isn't ready or interested to go?
Are ultimatums a way to ensure that one does not waste their time in getting to what they want? If so, is it best for said individual to issue the ultimatum to themselves instead of imposing it on someone else?
Would you agree that adults who know what they want don't need ultimatums? Since they keep their eyes on what they want and keep working towards it? In that case making ultimatums for fickle people who are neither here nor there and may need nudge in the right direction?
Have you issued an ultimatum in a relationship before or have you been on the receiving end of an ultimatum? Do share your thoughts.
