4:07 This show will pick up where we left off from our last show, where we were talking about the Four Ingredients of a Good Relationship. In last week’s show we talked about the first two ingredients: 1) feeling accepted, and 2) respecting and valuing your partner’s opinion.
5:37 When was the last time you said something positive to your partner? Dr. Marty shares many examples on how to keep communication positive. Frequently a criticism is perceived and responded to as an attack, whereas understanding generates understanding.
11:26 There is a particular time in relationships where people feel like they are in danger, and their relationship is really being threatened – when there is a fight.
13:29 It is very helpful if you find something positive, before you start to express a disagreement.
14:29 Dr. Marty shares some ideas that can be really helpful when you find yourself in the center of a fight.
18:35 If you disagree with your partner, be careful how you disagree.
20:50 How is it possible to disagree in an agreeable way?
24:15 It’s not about differences, it’s about how they are handled.
25:55 Dr. Marty uses an example couple, “Mark” and “Anna”, to illustrate how different perspectives can be handled in a disagreement that arises when Mark sees Anna correcting their children.
