"What if your disagreements could draw you closer? Every couple fights. In fact, successful couples disagree just as much as couples who don't go the distance. But a mountain of research shows what separates happy from not-so-happy marriages: they know how to resolve conflict. Happy couples have learned how to use disagreement to deepen their connection. Filled with practical advice that you can start using right now, The Good Fight will show you what pitfalls to avoid when you argue, how to use conflict for good and how to diffuse anger. The Good Fight will help you see your partner as an ally, not an adversary, as you learn how even the worst arguments can help strengthen your marriage."--From dust jacket
