          The Rules of Fighting

          June 02, 2005

          Dr. Phil Speaks in the Ears of Fighters

          Do you wish you could literally have Dr. Phil in your ear coaching you on exactly what to say when you’re arguing with your spouse? Using a hidden ear piece, these guests get just that … but they don’t know he’s behind a two-way mirror coaching both of them!

          Dr. Phil explains more about this experiment. The number one predictor of divorce is the way couples fight, so find out how to argue without putting your marriage on the line.

          Casey and Shari
          One of them will threaten divorce every time they argue, and they fight almost every single day.

          Cameras in the home reveal intense fights.

          Dr. Phil Joins the Fight
          Have you ever wished you had a coach in the middle of a heated argument? Dr. Phil steps in to help Casey and Shari via a hidden ear piece.

          Dr. Phil tries to keep them on point.

          Kevin and Cheryl
          After seven years and three children, their fights have gotten so bad, they feel divorce may be the only answer.

          Their daughter pleads for help.

          Dr. Phil returns to the stage after the show to take questions from the audience and to speak more with Shari and Casey.

          Final Thoughts

          “Disagreements are going to occur,” says Dr. Phil. “The question is, do you go into it with a spirit of looking for resolution or do you go into it with a spirit of getting even, vengeance, control? You’ll never win if you do that. If you make your relationship a competition, that means your spouse has to lose in order for you to win. It’s not a competition, it’s a partnership.”
