Should you really not go to bed angry? Sometimes the relationship advice you get is just plain wrong.
That old cliche, “you should never go to bed angry” is among the worst. (Trust me, all couples counselors and online couples counselors worth their salt roll their eyes when they hear it.) Here’s why you should actually sleep it off, and come back to it in the morning. I hope that this perspective helps you both avoid a nasty argument the next time things start to get heated.
