According to UsMagazine.com, the Carrolls gave a brief synopsis of their talk with the famous couple, saying, “I think they have marriage on their minds, but I think what Juan did was a really — I mean, it wasn’t a very romantic fairytale ending — but I think what he did was very wise in the fact that he said, ‘You know, I want to go through conflicts with this girl. I want to do some problem solving. I want to see basically what the ugly side is before I jump out there and tell somebody I love them and just get married.'”

Cupid’s Advice:

Things may become hectic or confusing during your relationship and love. You may be close to calling it quits, but there are ways to work through it and make your partnership even stronger. Consider this relationship advice:

1. Recognize the problems: The most important step you can take is to acknowledge the issues at hand. Challenge yourself to find out what wrong paths you and your significant other took along the way. Examine your partner’s behavior and mannerisms as well as your own.

2. Ask for some alone time: Alone time gives you the opportunity to think. There are little to no distractions, and your partner is not chiming in every five seconds. You can even make a pros and cons list. Hopefully, the good will outweigh the bad!
