"We Disagree About EVERYTHING!"


Like Jennifer Safian, on more than a few occasions I've had couples say to me during their free consultation, "We disagree about everything!"

However, as the mediation process evolved, they let their defenses down and somehow were able to come to decisions together without too much apparent conflict. Did they have to compromise? Of course they did, as many people often do when they have divergent opinions but want to find a solution. In the end, they were quite surprised and admitted that they never thought they would agree on so many issues.

The mediation process sometimes does wonders for people. It helps them find common ground upon which to start building an agreement. If both parties come in with the goal of getting things resolved, they usually do.

Don’t let the perception of total disagreement become the reality. Rather, accept the fact that even if you don’t see eye-to-eye, you may actually find ways to resolve things in a way that is satisfactory to all.
