How much do you know about Couples Communication
Communication at a Glance
1. How do you resolve an argument?
We carefully listen to each other until we understand our needs
We get over it without too much fuss and caress each other
We simply ignore it and pretend it didn't happen
There's hardly any resolution-we fight until the bitter end.
