My wife and I have used these rules for almost two decades in our marriage. I can personally testify to their transforming power.
Questions for deeper interaction:
- How intentional do you think you can be in the moment of a fight/argument? What strategies might you employ to be better?
- Do you or your spouse struggle with universal language? What strategies might you employ to be better?
- The third rule, while one of the simplest, can also be one of the most difficult for couples to navigate. How will you and your partner decide on what has to be a problem?
