When Your Partner Throws a Tantrum

How many times have you and your partner or spouse been in a conversation, it gets heated, and all of a sudden, one or the other of you is throwing a tantrum?

It seems to arise as though out of nowhere and before you know it, the whole conversation can turn into a knock out, drag down brawl.

I imagine most of you don’t feel good about treating your partner that way. This article will help you learn how to avoid getting into the ring or battlefield to begin with.

The Date Night that Went Sour

It’s Saturday evening and you are getting ready to go out. You and your partner had agreed to go out to your favorite restaurant for dinner because it’s been a long time since you had been out on a date together.

When Sex Hurts

Having sex with our partners should be fun. We love the people we have chosen to call our boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands and wives. We want to be able to share all of ourselves with them. After all, these are the people who we care about and who care about us. But what happens when sex isn't fun?...
