Please Watch this Video

What a Viral Video Can Teach Us About Marriage Communication

“It’s Not About the Nail” is a short video that’s been making the rounds. It takes a humorous look at the differences in how men and women communicate – and if you’ve been married for at least five minutes, you can probably relate to what the couple in the clip is going through.
