Conflict is not something you can shy away, Run or avoid in a relationship.

It’s important to know that the great relationships you admires where not achieved by the absence of conflict.

Key 1: communication

To resolve any form of conflict between couples the first key is communication, sit and talk, Listen to each other, It can save your relationship as sometimes you got to really talk before you know the truth, as assumptions can destroy your beautiful relationship.

Key 2: set boundaries

No matter your level of anger you must know when to stop. You must be conscious of the use of words, causes and very abusive words can lead to more arguments and anger, its a personal discipline, there should be a fair fight as it can help you destroy the rife between you and your spouse,

Key 3: give the benefit of the doubt and letting go

Forgive, let it go, that’s the way forward, you can’t always be right, just maybe, your thoughts are wrong, give him/her a chance.

Key 4: compromise

If the tv station to watch is causing trouble, why not try a little bit of compromise, if she can watch your favorite football game with you, why can’t he watch her favorite telenovelas show with her, if you want to go for something else and your partner wants to go for shopping why not plan doing them one at a time, it is nessecary to always keep in mind that it can always be about you.

Key 5: understand the causes

The two of you must come together, and get to know the reason behind your arguments, why you can’t seem to agree on one thing, and then look out for possible solutions.

Key 6: Right to opinion

Every individual has got right to their own opinion, it’s wrong of you to try and enforce your opinion on your partner these can make what was supposed to be a discussion become a very heated argument.

Key 7: talk when you are calm

Never try to resolve a conflict when you are not calm, as whatever your spouse says may irritate you even more, you see things differently when you are calm and have a better sense of judgment, what you can do is try and calm your spouse down first.

Note: remember that it is nessecary to go to bed not angry with your spouse, the night is long, you never know what the night may come with, the last memory should always be a happy one!
