Healthy Conflict in Marriage: Video 1 — "Your Marriage Needs Conflict"

In the first video of "Healthy Conflict in Marriage," Greg and Erin Smalley explain how you and your spouse can benefit from disagreements, arguments, and challenges in your marriage.

When you don't see eye to eye, you discover that your spouse may have a different way of thinking than you do and that creates a learning moment for both of you.

So let's get started.

First, watch the video below. Then, answer a few questions in the Go Deeper section at the bottom of the page. Finally, check out the additional resources to get the most out of this series.

  1. Download the "Healthy Conflict in Marriage" discussion questions and talk with your spouse about them.

  3. Read the article "The Hidden Value of Conflict" by Dr. Greg Smalley about how well-managed conflict is a treasure.
