Event Description

How fighting fair can make marriages and other relationships better will be explored at Lifetree Café on Friday, Dec. 20, at NOON.       

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 is located at 2500 29th Ave. (inside Lutheran Church of the Resurrection).

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Emily at (319) 377-4689 or office@lcrmarion.org.
