Patty, I like your idea of looking for Third Alternatives. All too often we think that there are only two choices, and we feel as though a compromise will mean that neither of us gets what we want. But by framing it as a third alternative rather than a compromise, it is easier to imagine that it might be possible to satisfy both.

Thanks, Rosemary!
