Why is it so hard to overcome stress in our lives? What do we do when it spills over into our relationships with our partners?

Outside stress can negatively impact our partnerships and marital balance. According to Dr. Benjamin R. Karney, a Professor of Social Psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles, stress affects our relationships because we have no direct access to each other’s experiences and feelings. We need to understand the unique values, desires, and preferences of others. When we recognize the stress in our relationships, we can begin to forgive, empathize, and improve them.

In this episode of Our.Love Podcast, Dr. Richard Safeer sits down with Dr. Benjamin R. Karney, Professor of Social Psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles, to discuss strategies to build trust. Dr. Karney talks about the impact of stress spillover in relationships, the importance of negotiating different desires, and overcoming the invisible stress of our partnerships.
