A practical handbook on how to fight better—together—for your marriage.
In every marriage, there is conflict. And with every conflict, there is a choice for resolution. Will you ignore the issue until it seemingly goes away? Or will you work together to find peace?
In Don’t Go to Bed Angry, Deb and Ron DeArmond give you permission to fight. Conflict isn’t the problem, after all; the real issue is how we deal with the conflict. Deb and Ron demonstrate how communication through conflict can safeguard—and even strengthen—your relationship. Immensely practical features including worksheets and discussion questions make this a definitive go-to resource to help you start fighting—together—for your marriage.

What I thought. . .
I wish they had written this book 30 years ago! Lot's of insight and wisdom. I loved the subtitle Stay Up and Fight this is so true and so smart. I've always remembered folks advising me not to go to bed angry. But never had I received the advise to Stay Up and Fight but to me it makes sense to go over the conflict and try to workout whatever it is. Maybe ending the whole thing with praying and going to bed less angry is the only option but it's a good option.
This book is a fairly easy to read and short only containing 9 chapters that end with a prayer. The introduction is especially helpful and gives the reader an over view of what each chapter/topic is about. I gained so much needed knowledge and insight that as I mentioned in the beginning I wish I had 30 years ago. So I think that anyone from the newly or young married couple to the mature couple could gain some valuable wisdom.
