Picture the scene below:
June: I feel so neglected and hurt because you spend so much time away from me and when you are home, you plunk yourself in front of the TV and pay no attention to me.
Fred: What are you upset about? I bring home the bacon. I support this family.
June: I give up. All I want is more time with you because I miss you.
Fred: I expect to come home to a peaceful space…not have you complaining all the time.
June: All the time? That’s it. I’m done!
Imagine door slamming, icy silence over the next days, and each person holding inner resentments that very possibly will come out sideways in passive-aggressive behavior. Ouch!
If only June and Fred had Tessina’s book! She presents a model of how to deal with conflict that can create sustainable, happy partnerships for a life time. Tessina writes about the five qualities that make for happy partners. She focuses on co-operative problem-solving and presents a Negotiation Tree that allows couples the ability to work out happy solutions to everyday to severe problems that inevitably show up during the life time of a long-term relationship.
Who should read this book? Ideally, it should be mandatory reading before forming adult relationships! Understanding and living the communication and negotiation skills in Tessina’s book before entering partnerships would give the ability to have high quality, really satisfying relationships - and leave behind much unhappiness, power plays, and unsatisfying compromises that most couples resort to because they can’t negotiate their differences without shredding each other! In short, the book should be on everyone’s bed stand or nearby book shelf for ready reference to work out happy solutions to couple problems with the result there will be more time to love and enjoy each other that can only spiral upward into continually satisfying levels of goodwill, martial satisfaction and enjoyment!
