"Why are the dirty clothes on the floor?" - How many times have you heard yourself say this and nothing ever changes?!
Well, apparently, 69% of the fights we have with our partner are about problems that never get resolved - aka, perpetual problems. From the dirty clothes on the floor to the finances and parenting, couples have recurrent arguments that seem to never get resolved! According to Dr. Gottman, this is very common in all relationships and it is due to the fact that partners have different personalities, values and life philosophies. The secret is to accept these problems as perpetual ones and talk to each other about your perspectives. Good conversations!
