Tips for Thriving in your Marriage
|Quote of the Week||Quick Links|
“What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.”
- Leo Tolstoy
|Tolstoy didn’t know it then, but there is actually a large body of research that supports that healthy marriages rely, in part, on a couple’s ability to manage conflict. John Gottman’s research suggests that “good fights” include soft starts and the ability to de-escalate and self-calm, for example. Conversely, he notes that bad fights include those in which either partner gets flooded, thus becoming unable to productively interact.|
If you don’t know how to fight, consider taking my seminar (I work on communication skills, among other things) or reading some of Gottman’s work.
