Corinne Edwards of Book Tours interviews James L. Creighton about his book, How Loving Couples Fight. Healthy couples fight. It is a normal part of relationships, and couples can learn skills to help them effectively handle fighting when it occurs.
Dr. Creighton recommends people fight fair and stick to solving the problem, rather than engage in accusations and blame. The goal is to resolve the issue, not to hurt the other person. Dr. Creighton discusses his 5-minute rule to break down resistance between two people.
