How does codependency play a role in relationships for behavioral addicts?

Let’s say you’re married to somebody who’s co-dependent with you. That means that if you don’t address this partner, your co-dependent individual, and probably engage them with you in the recovery process, there’s going to be a mighty clash; a clash of substantial proportion that actually may dissolve the relationship. So, the co-dependent must be brought to an awareness of their component in the continuation of the behaviour, and perhaps may be involved in their own individual therapy or couples’ therapy, or in some way be as integrally a part of recovery as the individual with the addiction themselves.
