As couples engage in constant conflict, they deplete their emotional bank account. When they go into a state of emotional bankruptcy their ability to trust declines and the their fondness and admiration decay. They turn away from each other, even against each other.
The unpleasant fighting takes its toll on the marriage. Sex, affection and romance is the first thing that leaves. Couples get entrenched in their positions and they experience gridlock. They get stuck. The loneliness and despair set in as the couple begins to take a negative perspective. They experience the beginning of marital death. Yet, there are ways of rebuilding the fondness and admiration system. There is an antidote.
