Conflict occurs between you and your spouse because you both think, feel and behave differently. Before you get upset over how different your spouse is from you, remember that you were attracted to each other because of your differences in the first place. Opposites attract. Rather than insist that you are right and he/she is wrong, negotiate to find a way that is right for both of you. There is always another way, a better way, of achieving what you both want.
