The marriage may be over, but the season has yet to air.  New footage from the upcoming season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York showed then-newlyweds Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian flirting around in a negative light, reports UsMagazine.  In the clip, Humphries picks up Kardashian and says, “God, you ate a lot of wedding cake!” Though joking, a source says that Humphries frequently criticized his wife. “He belittled her in front of people,” said the source. “He’d call her stupid. It was truly sickening.”

What are some ways to deal with your partner’s criticism?

Cupid’s Advice:

When your partner wants to make a change, they may not go about it in the most polite way possible. Here are a few ways to deal with your partner’s criticism:

1. Take their advice: Often times your partner’s criticism is just poorly phrased advice. Tell your partner that their tone is offensive, but take their advice into consideration.

2. Ignore them: If you feel your partner’s criticism is irrelevant, then ignore it. If the criticism has no effect on you, then your partner may stop trying to make a change.

3. Confront them: When criticism becomes frequent, it is time to confront your partner. Tell them that their criticism is hurtful, and ask them to stop.
