Why Keeping Score In A Relationship Is Never Worth It
Every couple slips into keeping score sometimes in their relationship. Score keeping is a common tactic whenever an argument comes up. If one partner gets upset at the other for doing something wrong, then the accused reminds the accused of a time he messed up in the same way. Before you know it, everybody is digging up old dirt, slinging insults, destroying happy memories and after it all, nobody feels any better. The truth is even if you could prove that you do more for your partner than he does for you, would you really want to? All that matters in the end is that you would do anything for one another—and not exactly how much each person has done. But there are several reasons why keeping score in a relationship is never worth it.
