Continuing on our series around relationships especially for married couples, read an interesting article at NYT recently. It talks about how the key to long and happy married life does not lie in more money, looks, power or the usual suspects. It rather brings out an interesting aspect around conversations which we always take for granted. If you feel more informed after talking with your better half it not only makes you feel good about your relationship it also makes your better half feel more ‘accomplished’. Now we are not suggesting that you suddenly turn into human encyclopedia and spout wisdom with every breath however we do recommend paying attention to the most hum drum part of your life i.e. conversations. Would love to hear your reactions and if you disagree or agree.
