When a partner or friend becomes the "saint" and makes you the "sinner" usually referring to augments or differences. the "saint" will bring up the "sinners" past ie words or actions which a lot of times where supposedly forgiven while improvements may have been made since than, those are overlooked and the "sinner" person is judged on past actions or words that have no bearing today, alot of times the "saint" doesnt look on his or her faults and precedes to judge others without taking responsibility for their own actions thus making themselves the saint.
