Announcer: The following minute is brought to you by Relationship Excellence dot com.
Owen Williams: Welcome to The Relationship Minute. I'm Owen Williams.
Owen Williams: Research shows that it's not how often a couple fight that is the best predictor of relationship success. It's actually how quickly they're able to repair the rupture that happens in the conversation, how quickly they can make contact with each other, reach out in a loving supportive compassionate way.
Owen Williams: We need to learn how to eat humble pie and come back to the table with some insights about what motivated us to do what we did or to say what we said and to take responsibility for how we each contributed to the disconnection. From there, it's about really having compassion for the relationship and realizing that a disappointment does not have to end the day.
Owen Williams: Thank you for taking The Relationship Minute and remember it's later than you think.
