Part VII is about resolving conflict.

Mike and Mandy discuss a recent conflict they had in their marriage.

Here are some questions we discussed about resolving conflict:

1. Is it ok to fight?

Ground rules:

-Don’t use words like “always” or “never”

-Use “I” statements instead of “you” statements

-Stick with the subject at hand

-Do not confront your spouse in public

-Be willing to admit when you’re wrong

2. Why does my spouse avoid conflict?

3. Why does my spouse overreact?

4. How can we work out disagreements?

5. How should we handle friendships with others?
