About this Episode

Couples yearn to maintain the early closeness and the early ease of intimacy they found in relating to each other. We can understand closeness as the amount of time as a couple that is ideal for us to spend together, and the ideal amount of time apart. Our ideal balance of intimacy lies in how tolerant we are in our partner knowing the real us. How do our care of these factors affect our ongoing happiness with each other?
