Overview

This book can help you solve two kinds of couples' problems: the kind your partner will help you with and the kind your partner won't. I'm Right. You're Wrong. Now What? shows how one person-all by him or herself-can begin to calmly address and resolve a dispute whether the other person will cooperate or not!

Experienced counselors JacLynn Morris and Dr. Paul L. Fair reveal their tested conflict-resolution strategy-an approach that can help you enlist the cooperation of your partner-to resolve the issues that many couples face: interfering in-laws, financial pressures, religious differences, selfish behaviors, lack of intimacy, jealousy, addictions, inconsistent parenting styles, even gut-wrenchers such as infidelity or illness.

Even if your partner is unwilling to budge, using the approach laid out in this book will:
- allow you to get crystal clear about what you want
- prepare you to make a specific, clear and blame-free request of your partner
- give you a solid back-up plan to use in the event that your partner is unwilling to grant your request

What People Are Saying

Harlold Kushner
Wisdom and common sense enriched by well-chosen case studies.
author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People
Melissa Fay Greene
Like a magician smoothing out a complicated knot with the tips of his fingers, the authors of this book teach a reader how to untangle the unhappiest snarls. With their guidance, you gain the unexpected new angle, the slightly kinder wording; a marriage's dead-end is revealed to have been an optical illusion, the bitter argument with the partner dissolves in laughter. It's not sleight-of-hand so much as a lightness of touch, assertiveness without blame, positive action without hostility. Love needn't be a tug-of-war between winners and losers, but rather a gentle balancing act among equals.
author of Praying for Sheetrock, The Temple Bombing and Last Man Out
