It is generally accepted that with most marriage therapy, the therapist needs to remained "balanced" nearly all of the time. That is, the therapist needs to hear both sides and not take one side or the other in any of the conflicts. Therapy often ends quickly when the therapist sides with one of the spouses, unless there is a rebalancing and evening out of the issue fairly quickly. Marriages often "stalemate" when both spouses get stuck in being right, and often they both are right (at least in what they value or believe). Helping marriages through both parties being "right" is an important aspect of helping couples change.
Marriage therapy often has to deal with conflict. Learning how to "fight" better is a part of marital therapy, but it is important to realize that spouses do not often take any learning about fight back home and practice it. It is very important to learn to "fight" better, but getting at the underlying values is often more crucial to change than a new rule about fighting. When the underlying values are addressed, the fighting often gets better because the marriage is doing better.
