Talk - Don't Fight

Sure, some movies feature couples screaming and yelling at each other. But while that makes for interesting movie viewing, that is not at all what a healthy relationship is about. The best relationships are between best friends who can discuss anything and who trust each other. They know they can bring up any issues because together, you can find a solution.

If you make it a practice to yell at or intimidate your girl, you are seting up a scene for disaster. Your girl can't trust you to talk about problems. So she won't tell you. This means problems will fester until they break things up. It is really critical that you are available to talk, and really make an effort to listen to problems and fix them. The more you talk, the more you address issues when they're tiny. The more you scream and yell, the more problems will be avoided until they are completely unfixable.
