Chapters share secrets to talking, listening, and to successful dialogue. Part 2 on dealing with differences describes techniques for handling the challenges presented by conflict. Chapters address fix-it talk, using anger as a stop sign, receiving anger without fighting, cleanup procedures after upsets, shared decision making, conflict resolution, and handling out-of-bounds communication and fouls. The last part discusses how to enhance a good marriage and includes chapters that discuss strategies for supporting each other, enhancing emotional and sexual intimacy, and making a house a loving home. 8 tables and 43 references.
