Managing Conflict in Marriage

This post has stuff about a previous relationship. My perspective has changed

Mary emailed me this great article from Family.org (a warning that I don’t know anything about this website) about conflict resolution. There are so many little useful tidbits in it.

When dealing with our own anger, remember that we can change no other person by direct action. We can only change ourselves. But an interesting thing happens when we change our responses – others may change in response to us.

Or

We agree with Ray Ortlund: "Why do we have to agree, or win, or conclude every discussion?”

Which I think is a great point.
