11. SO should not tell anyone what to do.
I think it's important for partners to express their feelings. It's okay for someone not to like one of their partner's friends or activities. You don't have to do everything together. And, if something is that intrusive, it's okay to break it off because you're not compatible.

But it is not okay for SOs to tell each other what to do, as if the other partner is a child. A partner can say that she doesn't like a friend, but I think it's completely unreasonable for he or she to "tell" the other what to do.
