RELATIONSHIP ADVICE
Laura Zigman

Experts always say that healthy relationships require good communication -- verbal communication. But if you're married or in any kind of coupled relationship, you know that this isn't always the case. Because non-verbal facial expressions are often the universal language of long-term love.

Ideal:
Each person shares his or her thoughts, needs and wants openly with their partner.

Reality:
Each person makes "The Face" and does "That Thing."
