This is the wrong way to argue with your spouse:
1. Scream and yell to get your point across.
2. Use physical violence if necessary.
3. Say hurtful and mean things if possible.
4. Leave with the kids out of anger to scare your spouse.
This passage made me laugh and then shake my head.
Who would act like that?!
You would probably be surprised.
“Mom and Bob’s problems were my first introduction to marital conflict resolution. Here were the takeaways: Never speak at a reasonable volume when screaming will do; if the fight gets a little too intense, it’s okay to slap and punch, so long as the man doesn’t hit first; always express your feelings in a way that’s insulting and hurtful to your partner; if all else fails, take the kids and the dog to a local motel, and don’t tell your spouse where to find you—if he or she knows where the children are, he or she won’t worry as much, and your departure won’t be as effective.”
