Dr. Noir here again! Another thing I learned from Dr. Pepper Schwartz's The Normal Bar: Surprising Secrets Of Happy Couples & What They Reveal About Creating A New Normal In Your Relationship:
"Research shows that a balance in sharing airtime indicates balance throughout the relationship. Any easy flow of talking and listening is a diagnostic for happiness."
So, be mindful of how much your'e chatting away and how much you're listening -- attentively. If one of you is out of balance, do a little tune up and hum happily along!
