How should you juggle the minefield that is a family dispute? Gad Krebs, Psychologist and Positive Relationship expert, believes you should consider the following three options.
Well intentioned people can dispense relationship advice, often unsolicited.
Accept this advice and then ignore it.
On the one hand it’s the case that those offering a sip from the holy grail of marital bliss are themselves struggling with dysfunction.
And even where they do enjoy harmony at home, just because the advice works for them is not indicative that it’ll work for you.
Each relationship operates according to its own norms and its own assumptions.
This is a result of the unique personalities of the couple and how they engage with one another.
What works for one couple may be disastrous for another.
