What was the last thing you rowed with your partner about? What to watch at the cinema? Why they didn't take the bins out? It sounds familiar doesn't it. Occasionally those niggles run deeper though and what was a quarrel can snowball into something more deep-seated.
In the heat of an argument, it sometimes feels like the only way to resolve the issue is through a mediator. That's all good and well but unless you are undergoing face-to-face couples counselling to address long-standing problems, no one has instant access to an arbiter. Or do they?
