In your new book, you talk about essential conversations. Does the opposite exist, topics of conversation that couples are better off never discussing?

Hi Mark! How'd you become a doctor when you didn't want to be one?

Hello, Dr. Gottman2!

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this AMA! I have a few questions.

  1. Have you found any interesting cultural differences that affect relationship success? Ex. arranged vs. western marriage, etc.
  2. What have you learned through your research that affected your approach to your own relationship?
  3. Frankly, I'm a huge fan of your work, have a passion for the subject. I aim to follow in your footsteps and obtain a PhD in psychology, focusing on relationships. What would be the best use of my time between undergraduate and graduate school?

I'm looking forward to reading your new book!

Have you come across this article about expectations around female orgasms? I think it may resonate with your experiences. It's an eye-opener for many. https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2021/04/weaponization-female-orgasm/618680/

If you were given unlimited resources/remit, how would you tackle troll farms?
