This Word Could Stop EVERY Argument with Your Partner!

According to marriage and family expert Hal Runkel there is one simple word that has the power to end an argument with your other half.

The word “ouch” apparently could be the answer to your troubles.

Clashes with the ones we love are inevitable and he has told Business Insider that it is human reaction to shoot something personal back after being slated.

Hal said that the word “ouch” is a good defence – because if you admit something has hurt you, your loved one is more likely to step back.

Mocking up a scene, Hal gave an example of: “Ouch. That one hurt. I don’t know if you were meaning to hurt me; I don’t know if that’s what you were going for, but that’s what you did.”

The expert adds that your partner may answer with a similar reply – and that opens lines for you to both admit guilt, apologise and make-up.

By saying “ouch”, you are giving forgiveness a chance.
