FIGHT FOR YOUR RELATIONSHIP


KEEPING THE RELATIONSHIP STRONG IN SPITE OF DISAGREEMENTS

(Disagreeing in a way that does not damage the relationship)

AVOID THE FOLLOWING:

  • Never bring up the past in a fight or argument
  • Never hit below the belt (character assassination)
  • No abuse (physical, verbal or emotional—including name calling).
  • No threats (indirect or direct)

DO MORE OF THE FOLLOWING:

  • Focus on behaviors only
  • Focus on solutions not problems
  • First understand their point of view (even if you don’t agree)
  • Look for win-win solutions
  • Look for “what’s best for the family/relationship” as a whole
