Do couples need to solve all their problems?

After 15 years of research, the University of Denver develped the Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program (PREP) to help couples overcome problems in their relatioships. However, they found that 70 percent of the issues couples deal with don't really need to be solved, just well discussed! Have you tried to have full discussions about an issue where you both listened well and really heard each other? Try it out and let me know what happened. If you find yourselves having difficulty doing this, maybe it's time to seek some help with communication skills. Learn the skills to undue the negative patterns before it's too late.
