But here’s the thing: we don’t experience this at all. Ever. Not in eleven years. And we’re not sitting on a volcano of suppressed complaints. This is absolutely, categorically the case. We’ve spent more than a decade examining this, and our conclusion is that in a committed relationship, as long as core values are aligned, such a state is available to nearly everybody.

Is a Conflict Free Marriage Possible? "Even those who presume that a conflict-free long-term relationship is unachievable are interested in reducing conflict and increasing harmony in their unions."
