Sometimes we all forget to think before we speak.  That goes with out saying, really.  But what response will light the fuse when your partner wants to talk about her job, his family, her favorite show, his health, etc.?  As silly as YOU may think it is, what is brought up that is concerning your sugnifficant other maybe something that has been keeping them awake night after night, or be worrying them so much it is effecting their health.

I have had what I thought at the time was a "stupid arguement" with my Girl Friend or Wife over the years, but after reading this story in the Huffington Post, I was really forced to think.  Perhaps this will shine some light on many of those "little things" that we laugh off while our loved one is upset.  Maybe it can help me be more understanding when she says, "do these jeans make my butt look fat?"  ...Okay, maybe not that one again!
