In the context of deconstructing a dumb set of generalizations by Dennis Prager, LabRat gets off a brilliant riposte (emphasis mine): “I absolutely believe he’s correct in that contempt is the most corrosive thing there can be in a relationship, and that a habit of rolling your eyes at your partner probably is more ultimately destructive than even infidelity.
