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?
