Resolving Marital Issues: The Key to Long Years Together
A couple who’s been married for 50 years (or longer) is phenomenal. Not many can achieve that, even if both will stay healthy that long. If you will ask them what kept them together, don’t be surprised to discover that their marriage is not “made in heaven.” They will admit their own weaknesses, pitfalls and mistakes. Like any couple, their relationship must have gone through some rough times, but they were able to resolve their conflicts to maintain harmony in the home front.
Love Has Nothing to do With Conflicts
Even the most in-love couples will not be spared from conflicts. These are bound to happen in every kind of relationship because being different is natural and having different perceptions, opinions, beliefs and convictions are normal. Your abilities to resolve marital issues affecting your relationships can determine whether your marriage can last for many, many years, or not.
Many marriages end in divorce, not because there is no love in marriage, but because they were not able to successfully handle their conflicts. The failure can cause them to feel anger, resentment, bitterness, hurt, and frustration. These may overwhelm or push them away from the home.
Discovering Conflict Resolution
There are too many stresses in any marriage and family. There are day-to-day sources of conflicts ranging from small matters, such as division of labor and time management issues, to major conflicts that may involve finances, vices, problematic children and different parenting styles. Not a day will pass when your lives will be a hundred percent stress free. Be consoled by the fact that it is the same with other couples and families.
Conflicts are a fact of life. When faced with conflicts, try to resolve them without resorting to a verbal or physical abuse. Conflict resolution involves finding a peaceful solution through effective use of communication.
Learning Conflict Resolution
Conflicts are not simple misunderstandings or disagreements. They can trigger intense emotions that will fester if you will not give them your attention. They will not go away or become less intense. In the long run, they will eat you up until the supposedly simple matters will be blown out of proportion. Hence, for a relationship to survive these conflicts, you must face and resolve them with a good sense of fairness.
If conflicts are building up, consider learning the basic skills of conflict resolution from a competent, independently contracted therapist of Carolina Counseling Services in Southern Pines. When it comes to saving a marriage or keeping a family intact and loving, nothing is too late. The key to long years of marriage is in your hands; start harnessing conflicts as a chance to improve your relationship within your home by taking this first step.
