The secret to a healthy marriage isn’t in how you avoid conflict, but in how you learn to resolve it.
In a relationship, avoiding conflict isn’t healthy. That’s called living in denial. The key to building a strong bond with your spouse is developing a healthy system of conflict resolution. Here are 3 great tips for keeping conflict in line.
First, Begin by seeing marriage as a partnership. Marriage should be seen from a “we” perspective, not an “I” one.
Second, when conflict comes, it should be handled quickly and decisively. You deal with it, then get past it. Never see it as a personal matter, just a decision you need to work through before moving forward.
And finally, when resolving an argument, always have a give-and-take attitude. All partnerships demand a lot of compromise.
