When life is going well our relationships tend to thrive, so we feel supported and able to cope with life’s ups and downs.

When family life is good, we're more likely to recognise our partner's good qualities and the support they provide us and our children.

When day to day niggles or grumbles start to take over, we can be less aware of the positive moments.
