"Alice began to take her husband for granted until he threatened to leave her." --Adapted from WTNID

This snippet says Alice probably cared very little about her husband; she continually failed to listen to him; invariably left most of the laundry and the dishes dirty; would rather stay home than go out with him and, worst of all, would always fake headaches when he wanted to have sex with her. This list does not end here. You can take it up where I left off.
