Learning Proper Negotiation, Part 3
How can you properly manage an unreasonable and/or resistant spouse during a negotiation?
When you’re negotiating with your spouse, it is assumed that things haven’t been going so well and you’re negotiating because you both can’t find common ground. Negotiation is reserved for major problems and issues that can literally crack a marriage in half.
Instead of choosing the “easy” path of arguing with your spouse until he/she gives in to your demands or storms out on you, I advise troubled couples to set aside their raw emotions and differences so they can rediscover common interests on the negotiation table.
