Conflict Resolution in Marriage
Couples can resolve conflicts and save their marriage. Many problems escalate due to assumptions, people react before they have the full picture, bad communication or someone not listening.
Many couples engage in constant arguments and destructive behaviour because they expect perfection but who is perfect not even ourselves. You can settle or reach a fair resolution of your disagreements demonstrating mutual respect, letting go of the need to be right. Learning to train your anger. You can be angry and still be in control of your emotions.
Most couples divorce without knowing that their problems can be resolved and the conflict if properly handled can strengthen their relationships. When they stop assuming, understand and help each other, communicate better, listen deeply in an atmosphere of love, attention and appreciation.
