Comment : 2016 taught me this : Take a deep breath, watch a Tahir Shah video and realize what a beautiful life it is. It is never as bad as it seems and always better than what it seems!

The dynamics of a couple relationship changes every few months/years. What is your takeaway from the lat year?

Why is it OK to objectify women but not men, and why are large age differences acceptable only when men are older?

Comment : The obvious answer should be no. Can a medium like the internet that allows you to manipulate your identity be comparable to meeting someone in the flesh? But funnily enough, not many are looking for "real" friendships and the ups and downs that come with it. At the end of the day, what everyone wants is a bit of attention. A 'like' here and there, a funny forward, witty comments on pics, a guinea pig to read our blog posts: that's all we need. So yes, it totally works for us.

We now live in a world where the internet is becoming a bare necessity. I've bonded with way too many people on the internet, & I'm sure many of you have too...Are internet based friendships really strong? Has internet based friendships made life more meaningful? What's your take on it?

Comment : The problem is not with being 'crazy' and 'adventurous'. The real issue is what it means for each couple and their feelings towards it. For some, an overtly expressive partner prone to dramatic declarations of love or incessant need to stay in touch would be crazy while for others it may mean the opposite. My husband never misses the opportunity to try extreme sports and it seem crazy at times but I love him more because of that spirit. Couples over time work out each others' likes an dislikes and the lines they should avoid crossing. This comment seems to stem from a communication lag. Perhaps he or she doesn't even know what they are doing is hurting/irritating you. Best wishes ??

Few persons love to be crazy & adventurous all the time weather they are in relationship or not. If the partner does not like adventurous things, sometime they need to leave their crazy nature. Why person can't be same after being in relationship ???

Comment : At the start of a relationship, everything is cute. The way he takes the family Ipad to the loo, the way she talks while she chews. A little time passes, maybe they are bound by the 'M' bond, maybe just the 'E' and suddenly those same quirks that we gushed to our friends lead to blazing rows in the middle of the night. And those that swallow their irritations inside...how spectacularly it bursts up out of nowhere to make it worse!

No one likes to be criticized even if they say they do. Everyone deals with criticism differently therefore there is no one size fits all solution but somethings are worth taking into consideration before one takes an aim at the partner.

1. Magnitude (Is it something that you can turn the other way and celebrate as uniqueness or is it something that keeps you up at night?)

2. Your partner's personality (Is she the kind who takes a subtle hint with humor or the long heart to heart talk kind ?)

To tell or not to tell will always remain a claasic bugbear in every relationship but the strong ones survive irrespective of it. If you do plan to tell, be ready to hear your partner's response. You never know what sleeping wild animal you poked!

Do you think in coupledom it is important to speak of what irks about the other's behaviour, even trivia. Imperative in understanding partner's anger, where it stems from? Give why/why not please.
