RUTH MILLETT * Few Couples at Odds Think Of Settling by Compromise By RUTH MILLETX NEA Staff Writer Came across a gound sound marriage rule the other day: "Never sleep on an argument or fight— compromise first." The trouble LS many married couples never think to end an argument with a He fights for his way. And she fights for hers. Every disagreement therefore, an all-or-nothing matter. And even then, the loser doesn't give up. lie or she just figures on evening up the score at n later date. Yet how much bitterness could lie avoided, and how ninny problems peacefully solved, if husbands atid wives would look for a fair compromise when their ideas clash. Some couples fight for years over a problem they could have worked out satisfactorily the first time it loomed between them' sis a threat to their oneness. TRY IT ON'CE—IT WON'T HURT How about working toward a compromise next time you and your husband disagree instead of fighting for your own way or begrndg- ingly giving in lo his? Just come right out and say: "Instead of our fighting over this, why don't we try to work out a Robert Porter, Mr. and Mrs. Freeman Robinson and Mr. and Mrs Phillips Robinson hosts and hostesses. Duplicate Bridge League plays at Hote^Noble at U30 p.m. compromise? What do you think •v-oiild be a fair deal to both of us?" All of life is made up- of compromises, And while most men and women bow to them as inevitable most relationships, it is the rare couple who thinks marriage problems should be worked out through compromise. It is probably not because hus- bonds and wives aren't willing to compromise. It's usually because the Idea of seeking a compromise nstead of fighting a matter out to i finish just doesn't occur to them But remember this: Before you suggest a compromise, you've got to be willing to settle for less than victory yourself. In a compromise you get a- little and give a little.
