Couples need to know what the research has found: that every happy, successful couple has approximately ten areas of "incompatibility" or disagreement that they will never resolve.
Successful couples learn how to manage their areas of disagreement and live life "around" them – to love in spite of their differences and to develop understanding and empathy fortheir partner's positions. "Irreconcilable differences" – like a bad knee or a chronic back – arenot a reason to divorce. Successful couples learn to dance in spite of their differences.

The good news is that the skills or behaviors for handling disagreement and conflict, for integrating change, and for expressing love, intimacy, sex, support, and appreciation can all be learned.
Couples can unlearn the behaviors that predict divorce – that destroy love – and replace them with behaviors that keep love alive.
