As I’ve traveled across the country for the last 10 years teaching marriage conferences, I often get this question, “How do I get along better with my husband or my wife?” or “How do we stop fighting?” The reason this question keeps coming up over and over is because, well, I hate to break it to you, but conflict in marriage is just about as much of a sure thing as death and taxes.
So since conflict is going to come, what do we do about it? How do we stop giant conflicts from destroying our marriage? How do we avoid big fights before they take place and how do we get back to loving and honoring and cherishing and forgiving one another even in the midst of our disagreements?
It’s those questions that led me and my wife Chelsea to team up again for an all-new six-lesson online course:
Fighting Fair: Surviving and thriving in marital conflict.
In this course you’ll understand everything from why we fight, to appreciating our differences and personalities, tips on what to say and what not to say during arguments and conflicts, and even thoughts on how we might involve our children. We also talk about what a healthy marriage should look like.
We’ve packed it full of downloadable resources and an in-depth study guide that will help you to go beyond the video lessons.
Chelsea and I have learned a lot over the last 27 years of being married and we want to share with you the same biblically-based principles that have helped us so much. And we’re going to have a lot of fun with it. In fact I even want to give you a sneak peek into, shall we say, a little disagreement and an area of conflict that we are currently trying to work out right now.
This course is for relationships of all stripes, for people who want to learn how to have less conflict in their marriage and for those who want to learn how to fight better when disagreements do come up. It’s even for people who are not yet married and want to learn these principles before conflict arises.
Remember conflict is inevitable. But conflict doesn’t have to be bad it doesn’t have to ruin your relationship. In fact conflict can be healthy and make your marriage better.
So join me and Chelsea at our kitchen table for Fighting Fair: Surviving and thriving in marital conflict. I don’t think you’re going to want to miss this. See you there!
