Can nagging really harm your marriage?

According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, nagging can be just as toxic to a marriage as adultery.

The author of the piece, Elizabeth Bernstein, stopped by "CBS This Morning" Thursday to dish on her findings: "Many more marriages will deal with nagging [than infidelity]. In fact, every marriage," she said. "We roll our eyes when we think of it, but it really does bring down marriages if you don't deal with it."

Bernstein says the problem has been made worse by modern technology: "It used to be just asking your husband to do something, but now, I can text him, I can email him at home, I can email him at work, I'm going to call him, he's got three phones... You can just keep going that way. It can drive him nuts."

Watch the video above to see Bernstein's tips on how to stop the cycle of nagging in marriage.
