Conflict Resolution Steps

Managing conflict in my marriage has been complicated by the fact that my husband and I approach the resolution from different angles.  He has wanted to have a rational debate and prove why his opinion is right.  I have wanted to have an intimate conversation about what I am feeling and what is motivating me on an emotional level.

Perhaps both approaches are each half of a whole in conflict resolution steps.   Forging a solution that is wise necessitates exploring facts and thinking clearly.   Forging a solution agreeable to both parties necessitates understanding the other’s feelings and emotional needs.   Do you think both approaches are steps needed to resolve a conflict successfully?
