There is an increase in reports of domestic violence. How can you resolve domestic disharmony with your significant other and your family unit as a whole?

Partners may be recognizing traits in their significant others, that while once cute, are now irritating. Knowing who your partner is, or rather who they have evolved to become, is one of the first measures to resolving domestic disharmony.

Additionally, since kids were cooped up all summer, unable to go to summer camps or typical activities, they may be restless. Spending meaningful time may help bridge any gaps forming in your relationship.
