We all know that one seemingly perfect — and annoying — couple who proudly claim that they never fight, and constantly call each gag-worthy, cutesy pet names while everyone rolls their eyes in unison.
It turns there’s a good chance couples like that, who claim they never argue, may not be as happy as you think and may be lacking communication in their relationship. In fact, “fighting” or at least having disagreements is healthy. Having effective conflict resolution skills is essential to facilitating open communication, which is critical to maintaining a healthy relationship. Unfortunately, many couples lack the conflict resolution necessary to express their opinions in constructive, not destructive, ways.
Couples therapy is an excellent way to learn effective conflict resolution skills as well addr
