Relationship psychologist John Gottman said couples who use humor to combat an argument tend to be more successful than those that don’t.
He wrote on his blog, The Gottman Institute, that using humor in an argument can break the tension between those involved.
‘It’s pretty easy to get caught up in the power of a single argument, but what if you took a few steps back to explore the anatomy of all your arguments,’ he wrote. ‘How do they start? How do they escalate? How do they go off the rails? How do they end?
‘If you could map them out, understand them, predict them, perhaps you could defuse them. Kindness helps.
‘It can pave the way to repair and remind you that your relationship is bigger than your argument. Humor helps. It can break the tension of the moment and provide the opportunity to connect anew.
I’m not suggesting that some arguments aren’t worth pursuing. About 31% of them have to be addressed. It could be your anniversary. Her affair. His addiction.
‘Whatever it is, whenever you can solve an argument, do. Whenever you can’t, recognize and remember that you’re normal, that kindness and humor help, and that in the end, perspective is key,’ he added.
