Many people think that learning to compromise is one of the keys to a successful marriage.
Would it surprise you to learn that Focus marriage experts Dr. Greg Smalley and Erin Smalley disagree?
According to the husband-wife team, compromise – an agreement where each person makes concessions – may not be the best way to help ensure long-term satisfaction in a marriage.
“I hate the word ‘compromise,’” explains Greg. “I don’t want to settle. I want to reach for something better.”
That’s why, instead of compromising, the Smalleys have found that it’s best to find a solution that feels great to both of them.
In today’s broadcast, Greg and Erin explain how couples can work through disagreement in a way where both the husband and wife will feel satisfied with the outcome. They provide examples from their own marriage as well as offer practical hints and advice that will help listeners understand how to employ these “win-win” techniques in their own relationships.
