4. Compromise – problem here is that one may be able to talk faster & think quicker, therefore compromise might not be as fair as one might be led to think initially (at spur of moment) 5. Take turns deciding (in family) 6. Husband is head of family – usually works best if used on rare occasion & when no other approach works. [?? But is it Christ-like??] III. WIN/WIN STRATEGIES (Everyone wins something) 1. Consensus – talk till you agree. Both believe differences can be examined. Both feel committed to relationship. If this is rushed or manipulated by one of members, it may be superficial. Takes time. (Look at pros & cons, make decision together). 2. Third alternative strategy – the problem isn’t what it looks like on the surface--more hidden, covert, unconscious--e.g. man wants to, woman doesn’t--may not be frequency of sex but relationship. Neither option is good – get a third. 3. Synergy – sum of both produces better decisions than each individually – both are enhanced yet both are individual. Both have input/contribution.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
