Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which statement about conflict is false?

    • A.

      Conflict is good and healthy for your marriage

    • B.

      Conflict helps clear the air of negative emotions

    • C.

      All conflict is resolvable

    • D.

      2/3’s of all divorces were labeled as low conflict marriages

    • E.

      You may need to give yourself permission to have conflict

    Correct Answer
    C. All conflict is resolvable
    Explanation
    The statement "all conflict is resolvable" is false because not all conflicts can be resolved. Some conflicts may be deeply rooted or involve irreconcilable differences, making it impossible to find a resolution that satisfies all parties involved. In some cases, conflicts may require compromise or negotiation, but complete resolution may not always be achievable.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The worst approach to conflict resolution is:

    • A.

      To want to "win"

    • B.

      To seek healing and restoration

    • C.

      To see yourselves as a "team"

    • D.

      To seek a "win-win"

    • E.

      To assess your own "mindset" first

    Correct Answer
    A. To want to "win"
    Explanation
    The worst approach to conflict resolution is to want to "win" because it promotes a competitive mindset rather than a cooperative one. When individuals focus solely on winning, they are more likely to prioritize their own needs and desires over finding a mutually beneficial solution. This approach can lead to increased hostility and resentment, making it difficult to reach a resolution that satisfies all parties involved. In contrast, seeking healing and restoration, viewing oneself as part of a team, and striving for a win-win outcome promote collaboration and empathy, fostering healthier and more effective conflict resolution.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which is the best approach in telling your spouse you want to talk about a problem?

    • A.

      Honey, we need to talk

    • B.

      You did something that upset me. Can we talk?

    • C.

      Honey, I have a couple of things bothering me. Would this be a good time to talk?

    • D.

      Honey, something's been bothering me. Would this be a good time to talk for about 5 min.?

    Correct Answer
    D. Honey, something's been bothering me. Would this be a good time to talk for about 5 min.?
    Explanation
    The best approach in telling your spouse you want to talk about a problem is to use a calm and non-accusatory tone. By saying "Honey, something's been bothering me. Would this be a good time to talk for about 5 min.?" you are expressing your concerns in a respectful manner and giving your spouse the opportunity to engage in a conversation without feeling attacked or overwhelmed. This approach allows for open communication and sets a time limit, which can help both parties feel more comfortable and focused during the discussion.

    If the conflict becomes  "heated" then it's okay to:

    • A.

      Drop the subject

    • B.

      Call your parents for advice

    • C.

      Call a temporary timeout

    • D.

      To keep arguing

    Correct Answer
    C. Call a temporary timeout
    Explanation
    When a conflict becomes "heated," it means that the situation has escalated and emotions are running high. In such cases, it is important to take a step back and allow everyone involved to cool down. Calling a temporary timeout allows for a break in the argument, giving everyone a chance to calm down and collect their thoughts. This can help prevent further escalation and create an opportunity for a more productive and respectful discussion to take place later on.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    When you reconvene after a timeout you should begin by:

    • A.

      Restating your case

    • B.

      Trying to clarify the real issue

    • C.

      Try to clarify what you heard your partner saying

    • D.

      By letting the person who call the timeout speak first

    Correct Answer
    C. Try to clarify what you heard your partner saying
    Explanation
    When reconvening after a timeout, it is important to try to clarify what you heard your partner saying. This is because during the timeout, there may have been miscommunication or misunderstanding between the parties involved. By clarifying what was heard, it helps to ensure that everyone is on the same page and that any potential conflicts or disagreements can be addressed and resolved effectively. It also shows respect and active listening towards the partner who called the timeout, allowing them to express their thoughts and concerns before moving forward with the discussion.

    Correct Answer
    B. A method of waiting for the question
    Explanation

This technique focuses on active listening and effective communication by giving each person an opportunity to speak and be heard.

  • 7. 

    Two universal questions to ask when your spouse makes a complaint is:

    • A.

      Can you tell me more? & What did I do wrong?

    • B.

      How do you mean? & Can you clarify the problem?

    • C.

      Can you clarify the problem? & Can you tell me more?

    • D.

      Can you tell me more? & How do you mean?

    • E.

      Can you clarify the problem? & Can you tell me more?

    Correct Answer
    D. Can you tell me more? & How do you mean?
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Can you tell me more? & How do you mean?" These two questions are effective in seeking more information and clarification when your spouse makes a complaint. "Can you tell me more?" encourages your spouse to provide additional details and express their feelings more fully. "How do you mean?" helps to clarify any confusion or misunderstanding by asking for further explanation. By using these questions, you can better understand your spouse's concerns and work towards resolving any issues in your relationship.

    Conspiracy thinking will help you anticipate and solve the problems in your marriage.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Conspiracy thinking is not a healthy or effective approach to solving problems in a marriage. It involves constantly suspecting and looking for hidden motives or secret plots, which can lead to mistrust, paranoia, and unnecessary conflict. Instead, open communication, trust, and cooperation are key to addressing and resolving issues in a marriage. Therefore, the statement that conspiracy thinking will help anticipate and solve problems in a marriage is false.
