Arizona Immigration Law: Rage and Relief

Some are shouting in rage while others are sighing with relief as sections of the Arizona immigration law go into effect today.

A partial injunction issued by the Arizona Federal Court yesterday blocked the most controversial parts of the law, including requiring police officers to question a person's citizenship status and requiring immigrants to apply for and carry papers.

It does allow the criminalization of hiring illegal immigrants as day workers and bans "sanctuary cities," or cities that do not enforce federal immigration law.

Many people are debating exactly what rights illegal immigrants do and do not deserve. But the courts are trying to determine who- the states or the federal government- has the right to draft immigration legislation.

We want to know your thoughts. Should Arizona continue its fight against the federal government?

Post your comments below and Josh will read some during the 10am and 11am ET hours of the CNN Newsroom.

Is fighting a good sign for your marriage?

Fighting in a relationship can be hurtful, stressful and an indicator that the end is near- but it doesn't have to be.

Research shows that it's not that we fight but how we fight- our tone of voice, attitude, word choice and whether or not we listen- that's most important, an article by the Wall Street Journal says.

Professor of psychology at the University of Denver and co-director of the Center for Marital and Family Studies, Howard Markman, developed the "speaker-listener" technique to help couples argue successfully.

Dr. Markman tells the Wall Street Journal that each person needs to know that they are being listened to and getting their point across.

Solving a fight using his method, he says, makes couples happier. And a happy couple is less likely to get a divorce.

Has fighting put a strain on your marriage or made it stronger? Share your experiences below.

You can read more about how to fight right here.
