They have a relationship that is not fulfilling. They do not feel much love coming to them, although they themselves give too much. Their partner is often demanding, irritable, self-centered or egotistical. This leads to the feeling that they do not want to go on with the relationship or marriage.
But on the other hand they stay because they feel responsible for the other person, or because they still hope that things will turn out better. They feel that they cannot leave, it is too painful. It reminds them of the thorns of the blackberry that are pointing inside: one can go into the bush quite easily but pulling back causes scratches everywhere.
They can also be in a relationship with a partner who is all the time thinking of going away. It feels as if the love is only half what it really was or should have been.
Circumstances can also give them the feeling of being locked in a marriage. They can feel imprisoned by the caring for wife and children. They cannot do what they want anymore.
