Happily Ever After is Just the Beginning – Fighting Fair Does Not Lead to a Happy Marriage

You have probably heard that even happy couples fight. In fact, you may have been told that couples who don’t fight can’t possibly be happy; that they are just sitting on unexpressed resentment. I want to know what other relationship in our lives we are actively encouraged to fight with the other person. Your children? Your best friend? Your co-workers? No one would accept that fighting with those people will help those relationships. So why does this idea that fighting in your marriage, as long as it is done right, will make it better. Dr. Corey Allen, licensed marriage and family therapist, founder of Simple Marriage, and co-host of Sexy Marriage Radio, joins Lesli for a discussion on how to resolve problems in your marriage without ever having to fight or argue ever again.
