Resolving Disagreements In Marriage

December 16, 2020 | Category: Uncategorized

On the process of forgiveness, Jesus said, “Indeed, if you forgive men for their transgressions, your Heavenly Father will forgive you too. But if you do not forgive men, your Father will not forgive your transgressions” (Matthew 6:14-15). The instruction is clear: God insists that we be losers, and marriage – probably more than any other relationship – offers frequent opportunities for practice. When Carrie and Jim first advised me about their couple`s chronic misfortune, I saw something familiar from my 35-year-old family therapist – a couple whose relationship was maintained, explosive and recurring arguments to silence and distance. Jim thought things never made his way; Carrie felt like her husband always had the upper hand. The problems have not been solved, sometimes for years. The children suffered from their parents` frequent arguments over seemingly petty things – not just the morning routine, but also homework, homework, bedtime and much more. The key to maintaining an open, intimate and happy marriage is to ask for and grant forgiveness quickly. And the ability to do so is related to each person`s relationship with God.

2. Consider marriage as a lifelong obligation, just as Christ is eternally attached to his wife, the Church. We all need the freedom to complain to our spouse. We must also ensure that our spouse knows that he or she has the right to complain to us. In a healthy marriage, there is a freedom of expression that allows us to speak openly without fear of reprisal or shame. Disagreements will surely manifest themselves in a marriage, but they do not have to lead to hurtful arguments. Few couples readily admit it, but conflicts are common in all marriages. We had our share of conflict and some of our disagreements were not pretty. You could probably write a book about what you`re not supposed to do! Stress at work, budgetary responsibility, poor body confidence, barriers to intimacy and lack of honest sexual communication are serious and urgent problems that lead to marital conflict. If you scratch the surface, you will see that building emotional intimacy with your spouse and embracing other forms of intimacy are of the utmost importance to enjoy sexual closeness and attachment to your partner. Conflict resolution in marriage is a normal part of everyday life, so if you have a disagreement with your spouse, don`t worry. You can solve almost any argument by pronouncing the problem and keeping your freshness to avoid saying something hurtful.

If something bothers you, you will find a good time to talk, if you are both well rested and are able to concentrate. Sit face to face and imagine the problem so your spouse knows what`s bothering you. For example, you could say, “I would like you to put the kitchen away. If you leave it chaotic, I feel like you don`t know how much I clean up. Be sure to actively listen to your spouse to show that you respect their feelings.
