In a relationship, both people have to equally contribute to make it a success, but actually, it’s not how things are happening. There are many couples who are happy, but many are not actually happy. Breakups happen when things go wrong in relationships, and there are people, relationship experts who can say if the couple is breaking up or not. Alex Scot, a relationship and self-love coach had detailed about Four Horsemen behaviors which predict if the couple will break up through an informative video on TikTok. Her video is based on research by The Gottman Institute’.
She had said to Bored Panda that the Four Horsemen; Contempt, defensiveness, stonewalling and criticism doesn’t mean the couple will break up, but the problems can be fixed. And Gottman says it an ‘antidote’ which is meant that things can be fixed. And to be fixed both of them should have the willingness to do it.More info: TikTok | Instagram | YouTube | AlexScot.com

#5. How TikTok users have reacted to her videos.
When you feel superior and you show it is a very bad thing in relationships. Gottman says that such couples have weak immune systems and are likely to suffer from colds and flu. Also not being open-minded and not hearing and changing your beliefs is also bad. Stonewalling or silent treatment and the fourth Criticism is also not good. It’s not nice to criticize your partner’s character even for small things. Alex’s aim is to stop such things and help women out there and let them have a happy healthy life.
