Flowchart: Should You Confront Your Spouse?

Ask a dozen married couples the secret to their marriage and you'll likely get a dozen different answers. Speak your mind. Let it go. Accept your partner for who he or she is. Encourage them to change for the better. Don't be a doormat. Compromise.

What to do?

Thankfully, Alisa Bowman of Babble has created (with a little help from her 9-year-old kid, no less) a handy flowchart on whether you should confront your spouse. Here's her guide on conflict resolution for married couples:

Someone much wiser than me told me the secret to a long-lasting marriage. It has three parts: "Yes, ma'am," "You're right," and "I'm sorry."

What do you think? Did the flowchart get it right?

"I want to sleep on the left side!" - "You're Right."
"Are you happy you married me?" - "I'm sorry."
