While driving to the office this morning, I turned on “The Kane Show” on Hot99.5 FM. Kane invited callers to tell him and his entourage about a relationship dispute and they would decide who was right and who was wrong.
What a great idea! I have often said that people in relationships have different agendas and they need a good conflict resolution system.
Marriage counselors can help, but they cost money, and frequently tell you that you are both right (in alternative universes), which may be true, but it is not very satisfying.
Divorce is the ultimate conflict resolution system, but it has some serious drawbacks. It’s expensive and time-consuming. Sometimes the judge doesn’t tell you who was right and who was wrong. And even when the judge does tell you, the judge frequently gets it wrong.
So we have decided, as a public service, that you can post your relationship conflicts in the comments section, and we will tell you who is right and who is wrong. We reserve the right to be arbitrary and capricious, but at least it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
