Cupid’s Advice:

Throughout your journey as a couple, it’s impossible not to encounter obstacles.  Here are some ways to deal:

1. Stay strong: Not matter what issue(s) you are dealing with as a couple, it is important that you face them head on.  Don’t hide in a corner.

2. Keep a united front: However you choose to deal with the problem, both of you must deal with it in the same way.  You can’t have one person doing one thing and the other doing another.

3. Take a step back: Problems such as gossip are best ignored.  Keep things as rational as possible.  Sometimes it’s easy to let your emotions get out of hand.
