From the Document: "Physical distancing that is required to contain the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic creates opportunities and challenges for couples and families. The sudden increase in time spent together within a common living space can promote 'family togetherness', but also possible stress and resulting conflict between intimate partners. Although conflict happens in every healthy relationship, and increased time together can provide an opportunity to build healthy communication skills, some families may struggle to address conflict constructively, creating risk for physical aggression. The following strategies may help partners manage conflict during periods of home confinement."
