Can Mr. Emotional and Ms. Practical learn to get along?

I’m asking for the benefit of a friend who is a having a terrible time with her marriage, but I’ve also never had any success myself in dealing with people who make all their decisions on an emotional basis. I get very frustrated when someone insists on making the emotional choice even though it makes no practical sense, and especially when they won’t even take responsibility for the consequences of doing so. If any of you have had success in this type of interaction, I’d love to hear about it. [more inside]
