Some Boomerangs cling to the spouse. These MLCers may have issues regarding a fear of abandonment as well as co-dependency. They will frequently seek reassurances from their spouse regarding the option to come home. Clinging Boomerangs cycle as is the norm for MLCers, but they also consider their spouse to be their spouse, whereas some MLCers no longer consider you with that label in anything other than a legal manner. A Clinging Boomerang may recognize the authority of their spouse over the alienator who they see in a lower position.
Clinging Boomerangs are constantly trying to reconnect through touch-n-goes. Though boundaries--especially rule-boundaries--do not work with early MLCers, Clinging Boomerang are an exception. A Clinging Boomerang needs boundaries--they are more effective than with others, though still not accepted well by the MLCer. A Clinging Boomerang wants you; and is attached and dependent toward you. This gives you leverage to apply boundaries, but be careful that do not you use this leverage to pressure. Firm boundaries are more effective in later MLCer and not recommended in early MLC. It is the respect and personal space boundaries that will likely be most necessary. Often with a Clinging Boomerang the purpose of No Contact is as a consequence for continuing contact/infidelity. Though they need reassurance that you love and care for them and have no desire to end your marriage, they also need a strong and firm spouse who will not enable their inappropriate behaviors.
