New House Rule: We Fight Naked

It came, unsolicited, but I think this is the best piece of relationship advice I’ve ever received. Not that I’m in a relationship right now–but I think I’ll use it when I am.

I met a friend in a coffee shop to talk about website requirements–which we did. But we ended up talking about a million things (as girls do). AND she said that she’d just made a new house rule for her husband: If we’re going to fight, we fight naked.

And for the life of me, I think that this one rule might save a few marriages–it might break a few too. But if you think about it, how can you have a legitimate fight with your significant other if you’re both standing there with no clothes on?

I guess it’s a version of that old rule: Don’t go to sleep angry. This rule just deals with it immediately instead of waiting for bedtime.

In the grand scheme of things, wouldn’t you rather bunny sex over arguing?

  1. It’s too bad that people in North America are so screwed up about nudity, or we could do everything naked. Naked people just don’t fight. Check out to find out where the unstressed folks hang out (so to speak 🙂 ).
