Internet video sensations, and podcast hosts Penn and Kim Holderness reveal how they fight better and end arguments feeling closer, more loved, and better understood by their partner.
My wife drives me crazy at times.
My husband should know what I need by now.
Is our marriage in trouble if we fight all the time?
Is it even possible to learn how to fight?
For the last several years, Penn and Kim Holderness have done the hard word and research. With the guidance of their marriage coach, Dr. Christopher Edmonston, they break down their biggest (and in some cases, funniest) fights. How did a question about chicken wings turn into a bra fight (that's spelled correctly, a bra fight, not a bar fight)? How did a roll of toilet paper lead to tears, resentment, and a stint in the guest bedroom?
With their signature sense of humor and complete vulnerability, Penn and Kim share their ten most common Fight Fails and how to combat them. Throughout the book, they provide scripts for how to start, continue, and wrap up hard conversations. Couples will emerge equipped to engage and understand, not do battle, and maybe even laugh a little more along the way.
In Everybody Fights, couples will find out how to:
- Conjure the magic of metacommunication
- Break free of secret contracts
- Banish distraction, denial, and delay
Penn and Kim want people to know they're not alone. Marriage is messy, it's work, but it's worth it, so fight for it.
