Is It Better To Be Right Or Happy?

Love, Heartbreak

You may not even realize just how much damage you are causing.

Couples fight. It's par for the course, really. But unlike real fighting matches, fighting in a relationship doesn't produce any real winners. In the end, everyone can end up getting hurt.

Relationship coach Dr. Bonnie Eaker Weil notes that when couples fight and someone "wins", both parties actually lose. So if there are no winners in the ring, is it better to be right or to be happy? You have to do what works for the relationship because that is what really matter. Think about how important it is to be nice to your partner. When one of you wins the argument you both actually lose. Take a step back and think about what is more important, your happiness or who should wash the dishes today? If the relationship means anything to you then your happiness is more important. You have to take a walk in your partners shoes every once in a while. Think about where they are coming from before you begin to yell and scream at the top of your lungs. How would you feel if the positions were reversed?

You probably know what works in your relationship but watch the video to see what the expert thinks. It might change your life!
