I’m not sure it even has a name but the term couples use most often is ‘Putting On a Show.”
When it happens, it’s discouraging and misunderstood.
No one plans to argue in the car, then walk into an event as the ‘Perfect Couple’ and then resume the argument the moment you walk out the door.
It makes sense that you would want to show your best side to others; neighbors, friends, family and sometimes – perfect strangers.
But how do you address what’s going on between you and your partner when things go sideways and no one is looking?
That is what truly matters and that is what people really want to know.
