Finding Agreement- The Deeper Secret Behind a Sleep Apnea Mask

Watch Intro Video

In this episode, Emerson and Jonathan discuss the importance of finding agreement in a marriage, particularly when it comes to sexual intimacy. They share a story of a couple who went through Emerson's win-win marriage course and how they found agreement on the issue of sleep apnea. The conversation highlights the need for open communication and empathy. Some key takeaways are that finding agreement requires bravery, building bridges instead of walls, seeing issues as tune-ups rather than major overhauls, understanding each other's perspectives, reminding each other of goodwill, and seeking outside help when needed.

Questions to Consider

  1. Reflect on a time when you may have avoided discussing a sensitive topic with your spouse. What fears or concerns held you back, and how might you approach it differently now?
  2. Consider the concept of "building bridges, not walls" in your own relationship. Are there areas where you could actively seek common ground and explore third options to enhance understanding and connection?
  3. Think about your communication style when expressing needs and vulnerabilities to your spouse. How might employing empathy and seeking to understand their perspective improve the quality of your conversations?
  4. Reflect on the idea of inviting a troubleshooter or referee into your relationship conflicts. Are there situations where seeking outside guidance could help break stalemates and foster resolution?
