Inside the Lesson
In this episode, Fawn Weaver—founder of “The Happy Wives Club” blog and author of The Argument-Free Marriage—discusses how every couple can lay the groundwork to create a marriage free from arguments. Fawn unpacks the differences between a discussion and an argument and how to recognize the moment when an argument is about to erupt. The key, she explains, is to pause, step back, and investigate the “original emotion,” or the true emotion that is driving the argument.
Every couple has certain topics that are triggers for an argument. In those moments right before an argument, the key is to pause and realize that you and your spouse are not speaking from a place of vulnerability and, therefore, are no longer communicating effectively. Being vulnerable does not come easily for most people, but it is vital to the health of your marriage. When the four walls of your home, or your bedroom, are a safe place, you will both be more willing to let the walls around your hearts come down.
