  • There are couples that seem never to argue; their relationships are marked by enormous outward politeness.


  • They say thank you a lot, they make each other cups of tea, they can look rather horrified when there’s a mention of a squabble in someone else’s life.


  • It's understandable if theyre, privately, a little pleased with themselves.


  • But surface harmony isn’t, in reality, any reliable sign of health in love because it’s impossible to try to merge two lives without regularly encountering deep sources of incompatibility.


  • A lack of arguments is more likely to be a sign that we have given up caring than a superhuman achievement of maturity.


  • The goal isn’t, therefore, to do away with arguments, but to find our way towards their more fruitful variety.


  • We need to learn to argue well rather than not argue at all.


  • What, then, are some of the ideas that might help us have better arguments?


  • The single greatest idea that can help us to argue more constructively is to remind ourselves publicly that we areboth of usby nature, deeply imperfect and, at points, quite plainly mad.

    より建設的な議論をするための唯一最大のアイデアは、自分自身に公に言い聞かせること、私たちは ⏤生まれながらにして二人とも、深く不完全で、時には明らかに狂っています。

  • The enemy of mature arguments is self-righteousness.


  • The sense that we might be beyond fault and that our partner must either be wicked for making a mistake or unfairly critical in alleging that we have been guilty of one.

  • It is of immense benefit if relationships can be conducted under the assumed truth that both participants are idiotic, mentally wobbly, quite flawed in manifold ways, and, so, constantly in need of forgiveness.


  • It is an implicit faith in our own perfection that turns us into monsters.


  • People concede points not when theyre aggressively told theyre wrong, but when they feel loved.


  • We get stubborn and withhold the truth when were scared and suspect that the person challenging us hates us, means us harm, can never forgive us, and is, perhaps, about to leave us.


  • It is indispensable to preface every criticism with an assurance of ongoing love.


  • People change very slowly, and seldom when they are harassed into doing so.


  • We must strive not to be desperate for change in our partners.


  • We must make our peace with the idea that they won’t evolve as we would wish on the timescale that would suit us.


  • We should be rather pessimistic about human nature in order to encounter one or two grounds for hope.


  • We shouldn’t aggravate our frustration by a sense that we have been uniquely cursed in ending up in this relationship.


  • Of course they are annoying sometimeseveryone in the world would be equally tricky at points, and often, probably a lot worse.


  • The specifics of why we are in an irritating dispute may be local, but that we are in one at all is a universal destiny.


  • We should laugh darkly at the human tragedy.


  • Our partner is only ever frightened, worried, or not thinking straight rather than bad.


  • Just like us, they carry a lot of emotional baggage; they have been shaped by their complex, and at moments, very troubled history.


  • Much of what they do isn’t directly about us, but is a way of coping with difficulties that came into their life long before we met them.


  • Choose the moment.


  • We can be under the illusion that arguing is an exchange of intellectual ideas.


  • But it is largely a process reliant on our emotions and is decisively influenced by such easily-overlooked matters as how much sleep weve had, how much weve drunk, and what time it is.


  • As a general rule, wait till tomorrow.


  • Don’t let the relationship die from misplaced politeness or embarrassment; dare to name the problem, however shocking it might sound.


  • As long as it’s been carefully wrapped in layers of love, the truth is normally bearable to those who care for us.


  • It doesn’t matter if were right; we must be prepared to forego all the pleasures of proving a point.


  • Were not not trying to win, but to live as happily as possible with another person who is, in the end, our best friend and on our side.


  • Despite all this, we will, of course, still have furious rows; we will call each other the worst things, slam doors, and cry.


  • It’s hugely normal.


  • The capacity to be horrible to a partner is even a strange, though genuine, feature of love.


  • A relationship has to include the madder, more unreasonable parts of our nature; if we are only ever polite, it’s because we have not been made to feel safe.


  • A row may have to be the turbulent passage towards the kind of deeper reconciliation we long for.


  • It can, at points, be important to say some wild and hurtful things to halt a drift apart.


  • By foregrounding for a while the most extreme points of conflict, we set up the conditions for reconnecting with larger areas of closeness.

    最も極端な対立点を一時的に前景化することで 、私たちは、より広い範囲の親密さに再びつながるための条件を整えます。

  • We now remember that, despite an evening squabbling like the frightened, foolish, barely semi-rational idiots we are, we do love them deeply nevertheless, and will strive, with all our willand perhaps with the help of the odd film like thisto argue a little more sensibly next time.


  • Our Relationship Reboot cards inspire conversations that can help to rekindle love between you and your partner.
