However, children with regular contact with the nonresidential parent whose parents were low on parental conflict showed the lowest rates of behavior problems. If you have only 25 or 30 minutes, that's fine. Recall the times when children grumbled, “That’s not fair!” Often our flip response was, “Life’s not fair.” We hope our adult children have forgiven us for life’s inequities, large and small. A marriage cannot survive with merely superficial conversation. It seems that each one us must learn how to be a parent anew, as if there were no widely agreed upon childrearing values.

Recognizing same-sex relationships as marriages would legally abolish that ideal. Most couples will encounter some issues upon which they will never completely agree. Your partner may feel like he or she has to walk on eggshells to avoid blowups. This will keep you focused on what's really important -- how the two of you relate to each other -- rather than on the logistics of your relationship. I wanted to end the relationship, but my partner did not.
