psychology essay

Project Description:

two months after accepting a new job, your friend amy confides in you that she’s unhappy in her marriage. she tells you that she and her husband seem to be fighting all the time, and nothing seems to get resolved. she tends to be very high-strung anyway (her friends call him "type-a amy") and now she feels like the stress of the constant bickering is affecting every aspect of her life, including her health. since you're in a psychology class, she asks you for your thoughts on the chances of her marriage surviving and your advice about what she can do about his stress.
