In spite of what you may believe, happily married couples do not "get along all the time." Rather, like other couples, they have their fair share of disagreements and yes, even loud arguments. And while marital conflicts are inevitable, successfully married couples have learned how to work through them in healthier ways.

John Gottman and Nan Silver have written a very insightful and comprehensive Psychology Today article about this very topic titled, What Makes Marriage Work? 

They call upon their own experiences as therapists and provide several "real-life" examples that support their contentions.

What's more, you'll find their advice extremely useful for improving your communication style in most any relationship, so be sure to read it.
