If one party wants a fire sale for more cash now, and the other wants to sell slowly to maximize profit, how do they decide what to do?

    They'd probably want to meet with a specialist in the arena of whatever they're selling to discuss their options. So an investment specialist if they're selling stocks, a real estate expert if they're selling a house, etc.

    Perhaps divide those assets so each can manage as they feel right for themselves?

    Figure out what are the most profitable 

    items. "Fire sale" the rest, and slowly 

    sell those better profit items.

    You either find a compromise, or give in, or insist on getting your way regardless of the consequences.

    You each accept that the other one has a point of view and a valuable opinion to be respected. Two people will NEVER agree on everything. How boring would that be?! It does NOT mean that one is right and the other is wrong - or that in months or years one or other will feel it was the right or wrong decision. 

    You could each decide what the objectives are, and then write a list of the plusses and minuses of each option and go through them together. Ok, one of you will be disappointed, but if you can't compromise, accept the final decision. It really isn't worth getting upset or angry about.

    This probably doesn't feel like it, but it IS a storm in a teacup. People are dying daily from starvation, disease, etc., and every single day people lose loved ones for the  same reasons. The decision you need to make will not be very important compared to some you will have to make in the future about children, parents getting old, etc., etc. So get things into perspective. 

    Good Luck!

    You learn how to compromise.
