Benefits of fighting fair addressed at Lifetree Café

| February 20, 2021 1:00 AM

How fighting fair can make marriages and other relationships better will be explored at Lifetree Café on Monday, Feb. 22, at 2 p.m.

The program, titled “Conquering Conflict: Healthy Ways to Tackle Disagreements,” features a filmed interview with Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, whose relationship-building work has been featured on CNN, Good Morning America, Oprah, and the New York Times best-seller list.

“The average married couple argues about small, nagging things as much as 312 times per year,” said Les Parrott. “What matters is how we fight, not whether we fight.”

He also said fighting fair helps all relationships, but marriages suffer most when couples employ dirty tactics. “Ninety-three percent of couples who fight dirty will be divorced within 10 years.”

Participants in the Lifetree program will gain practical insights and skills for fighting fair, according to Lifetree representative Craig Cable.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café meets at Jalapenos Mexican Restaurant, 314 North Second Avenue, Sandpoint, Idaho.
