Entitlement in a relationship refers to a mindset or attitude where one partner believes they are inherently deserving of certain privileges, benefits, or treatment from the other partner solely based on their role in the relationship or their own perceived worth. This attitude can manifest in various ways, such as expecting special treatment, feeling entitled to have one's needs prioritized over the needs of the partner, or believing that the partner should conform to certain expectations without question.

In relationships, entitlement can lead to imbalances of power, resentment, and conflict. It can create a dynamic where one partner feels taken advantage of or unappreciated while the other partner may feel justified in their demands or expectations.

The Sense of Relational Entitlement Scale—Revised (SRE-R) measures one's sense of entitlement in a relationship. Based on extensive psychological research, this questionnaire assesses the impact of an excessive sense of entitlement with their romantic partner.
