Fighting For Your Love Rather Against Each Other

by Johanna Virtue
(Toronto, Canada)

In an interview on MSNBC, Dr. Laura Berman says that it's how couples fight that determines whether they'll stay together. Berman says that couples need to learn to fight FOR their love, rather than AGAINST each other. This requires communicating needs and feelings, rather than hiding behind anger and resentment.

If more people could adopt this philosophy, the world would be a happier place. Problem is most people are invested in their ego and in making the other person "pay" for the way in which they feel they were wronged.

Perhaps this could be the subject of a Laura Love video because while Berman tells couples what to do, she doesn't really tell them how.

love fight NEW

Yes she is absolutely right. For a couple who are being loved for about 3 years cannot easily be separated. If they are separated after a big fight then that was just a lust. But if we cannot separate from their love, then they are the real lovers. B&G sprayer

Fighting for Love
by: Dave Masterson

I like this explanation of how you should "fight" when you're in love. People need to learn how to do what is best for the relationship, but most people are just interested in protecting their egos.

C'mon, Laura Love, we need you to do a video on this!
