Fighting Fair in Marriage Worksheet

What is the theory behind this Fighting Fair in Marriage Worksheet?

‘Fighting fair’ refers to adopting healthy and constructive ways of conflict resolution instead of resorting to unproductive habits that worsen relationships in the long run. Since disagreements are an inevitable part of marriage, it is only reasonable to solve them in a way that does not affect the sanctity of their relationship. 

How will the worksheet help?

This worksheet will provide some fair fighting rules that can be provided to couples seeking marriage counselling as a way to teach them healthy conflict resolution. They can use the worksheet to analyse their disagreements and which rules they need to work on the most as therapy progresses. Putting it up somewhere easily visible can also help them remind themselves of the rules when needed.. 

How to use the worksheet?

This worksheet can be used in couples therapy when the therapist is focusing on helping couples work through their conflict resolution skills. Provide them with the worksheet and ask them to self analyse their disagreements to write down which rules need to be worked on the most.
