10. Behavior in stressful situations
Sometimes we face a situation that pulls the rug from under our feet. It can be something small and insignificant or a big and important event that requires an immediate reaction. In any of these situations, it’s important that you and your partner complement each other.
It will help both of you to avoid rash actions and overly slow reactions.
