When Strangers Observe Your Relationship, What Do They See?

How many times have you been around a couple and felt soooooo uncomfortable because of how they interacted with each other? Either the wife talked down to the husband, or the husband made disrespectful comments to or about the wife or they were arguing in front of you like you weren’t even there?

My wonderful husband shared this article with me and I’d like to share it with you.

BTW, if you are “That Couple”, then you DEFINITELY need to read this. And stop making people feel awkward!
