This is very good relationship advice that all of us can use. Every couple argues. None are perfect and none agree all the time. The key is not to let the fights ruin the relationship. There are right and wrong ways to disagree. This gives you one important thing to remember. This could help you keep your relationship healthy so is crucial. Many couples failed because of how they handled their fights and that’s very unfortunate.
- In a divorce, I once represented a woman who insisted on fighting for her marital bed, which her husband had made and given to her and now wanted back.
- Finally, I pulled her aside and said, “Do you realize how much money you’re spending fighting over this?”
- When people are overwhelmed with emotion, they lose all perspective.
“But I push couples to remember the goal: You want a resolution. Instead of focusing on the past, think about what you want the future to look like, and how we can get there.”
