If you're reading this, it's likely that you may have—at one point or another—experienced nagging in your relationship. Hey, believe us, you're not alone.
A recent YourTango survey revealed that nagging affects 70 percent of relationships, with more than half of respondents reporting nagging to be a "problem" (that figure jumps to 61 percent for married couples). Therein lies the rub: while nagging is uber-common, it's not benign.
Enter Nag-Free Week, a seven-day event encouraging readers to join together to stop nagging and start communicating more effectively in their relationships. Throughout the week, we will be offering expert advice on what causes us to nag, why nagging is bad for couples, and how to nip it in the bud; plus roundups of the latest research on nagging and coupled communication, first-person essays about how nagging has affected our relationships & more!
