  1. I totally agree if you don't share your stress and feelings with your partner it is likely to cause further tension between.
    After all is you feel tense and uptight there is no way that this is not going to show, you might even be grouchy and argumentative with your partner who won't understand why.

    I always make a point of taking the time to talk to my partner when I feel stressed and it always makes me feel better.
