It seems like there is relationship advice just about anywhere. Every magazine has a quiz about dating or finding true love. Every bookstore has a whole aisle of books about finding and keeping the perfect mate. Everyone has talked about their relationship with friends, and been given lots of advice, both good and bad.
Despite all this, we often find ourselves living in strained relationships with the people around us. In an ideal relationship, both people make decisions together and respect one another. All too often, however, real relationships explode in conflict and painful disagreement. An unwanted pregnancy can put enormous stress on a couple, so it is important to handle it in a way that is respectful to both parties and leaves neither person feeling alienated or unheard.
