Do you fight with your partner?  Of you do!  We are all do!  Conflict is a natural part of any relationship.  But what happens to you, emotionally and physically, when you have an argument with you partner?

A recent study found a link between a spouse’s stress, a couple’s conflict, and cortisol levels.

This article reviews the study and the outcome of the study.  If you do not have time to read the full article, there a few recommendations stated in the article such as:

“Couples in this study who demonstrated more active listening, self-disclosure, humor, and constructive problem-solving did not experience greater levels of cortisol, even in the face of elevated partner stress.”
