Of all theories of relationships, Sigmund Freud's oedipal complex has probably caused the most controversy. It began with the study of a boy known as Little Hans. Freud believed the boy's terror was due to feelings of anger he had internalised that related to his parents. Freud theorised that all small boys select their mother as their primary object of desire. They subconsciously wish to usurp their fathers and become their mothers' lover.
