College of Liberal Arts and Sciencessaid: “The idea that simply being more supportive is better for your marriage is a myth Often husbands and wives think”If my partner really knows me and loves mehe or she will know I’m upset and will know how to help me” “Howeverthat’s not the best way to approach your marriage Your partner shouldn’t have to be a mind reader Couples will be happier if they learn how to say”This is how I’m feelingand this is how you can help me”” Lawrence and colleagues found that receiving more support than desired posed a greater risk factor for marital decline She said: “If you don’t get enough supportyou can make up for that with family and friends — especially womenwho tend to have multiple sources of support When you receive too much supportthere’s no way to adjust for that” The paperpublished in the Journal of Family Psychologywas co-authored by Rebecca L Brocka UI graduate student in psychology A related study showed that it was important for men that their

12:29 am Related News Ajit Singh has promised to move out of his Lutyens bungalow this week and Delhi’s most dramatic property dispute is hopefully drawing to a close But the demand for a memorial to his father Chaudhary Charan Singh right there refuses to go away The political compulsions for that are obvious Its career so far suggests that the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) is a plug-and-play outfit that has made alliances across the political spectrum apparently in return for a foothold in government or a cabinet berth But now the Modi government which has a comfortable majority appears to have sent Ajit Singh to the discount shelves Hence the suddenly loud clamour for a memorial to Charan Singh from whom he had inherited both the bungalow and his political patrimony The political-electoral marginalisation of Ajit Singh is due to his failure to develop on his inheritance — the consolidated Jat vote built on ethnic pride and the former prime minister’s sensitivity to agrarian issues Memorialising his father would appear to be a neat way to guilt-trip the old flock But a memorial to Charan Singh should be in Baghpat not Delhi Babu Jagjivan Ram should be memorialised in Sasaram not on Krishna Menon Marg The Lutyens Bungalow Zone barely has room for the living and the dead simply must not encroach Indeed a cabinet note of the Vajpayee government had suggested barring memorials from the area MPs can be tenants from hell and separating them from their bungalows sometimes requires surgical intervention But Ajit Singh’s case is still eye-catching He had not deigned to respond to the government’s eviction notice A police party was sent packing by his supporters And when the authorities turned off the water supply to the bungalow Ajit Singh’s supporters tried by means of a violent agitation to cut off the capital’s water supply from the Ganges canal This bizarre attempt only draws attention to their irrelevance and desperation Communal violence in UP has fractured the Jat-Muslim vote base of the RLD and it seems to be going out of business In this condition the party hopes that a memorial may yet rekindle old loyalties But it would do better to spare overcrowded
