          Fighting Fair

          July 21, 2003

          All couples fight … but how you fight could make or break your relationship. Some couples yell, scream and demean each other. For this show, two couples allowed cameras in their homes. Dr. Phil steps in to mediate, offering advice on how to fight fair and how to save their rocky marriages.
          Dr. Phil also looks at the number one predictor of divorce: how you end a fight. “Whatever happens, you must allow your partner to retreat with dignity,” he says.
          Robin and Glenn
          Since they tied the knot seven-and-a-half years ago, Robin and Glenn say they’ve fought almost every day of their marriage.



          Karen and Mike
          Mike will sleep on the couch for up to a month after a fight with Karen. She’s slowly been moving her things out of the house.
          View their stories and Dr. Phil’s reaction.

          Update: See how Robin and Glenn are doing now.
