USA Today's Stacy Kaiser compiled a list of the "Big 8" relationship issues that couples face, four of which are highlighted as being "destroyers."
The list includes things like "brushing things under the rug," "not listening/talking too much," "unreasonable expectations," and "blaming your partner for the problems."
This may be a case of "yeah, obviously those are the issues" or perhaps it's a bit more complicated than that.
Stacy's next post is said to include an additional four issues (because 4 + 4 = 8) but I'll invite you to weigh in. Have you found that the biggest issues you've faced in a relationship boil down to these four? And if not, what issues do you feel she left out?
