Meghan Freed gave one of the ten tips featured in MSN/Redbook Magazine article “10 Surprising Relationship Tips Divorce Lawyers Wish You Knew.”
Meghan Freed, co-founding attorney at Hartford, Connecticut-based Freed Marcroft, LLC, says two words create the most arguments at her practice: ‘always’ and ‘never.’ “Many people will say that their spouse ‘never’ listens to them,” she says. “That statement practically insists that their spouse will immediately fire back with: ‘I’m stuck listening to you right now, aren’t I?'” She says that by taking those words out of heated discussions or day-to-day bickering, you lower the risk that it’ll turn into a big, blowout argument. “Those words don’t accomplish the intended goal of your spouse understanding how you feel about something,” she says.
