This paper reviews relevant research to develop a specific marital counsel aspect of analyzing marital conflict by focusing on the "Me" and not on the "We", and the practical application of this theorem. The paper is based upon previous clinical studies and research literature that address the two aspects of marital counseling, that of the effects of unresolved conflicts on marital satisfaction and longevity, and the ability to teach intimacy skills and their contribution. The paper notes that the research is limited to the later part of the recent century as well as some current research, where there is surprisingly little current emphasis on marital couples without intervening afflictions such as alcohol or chemical dependency, spousal abuse or child molestation. The review of the effects on marital status and longevity is incorporated in as much as they apply to the primary theorem, but not addressed as individual parts of the construct. The paper points out that the proposition of taking the individual approach of the "Me" as to the supplanting of the traditional couples counseling, the "We", is not necessarily the intent, rather an exploratory premise that may hold some merit in overall marital satisfaction and longevity.
