Judson T. Landis in Nov, 1987 Homemade

Disputes between married couples are no different from those between friends outside of marriage. Few friendships can survive constant or frequent quarrels. Friends learn to curb the impulse to say bitter words in the interest of preserving the friendship.

In the same way, happily married couples learn to withhold the bitter criticism or cutting retort in order to avoid unpleasantness and to enjoy greater companionship.
