Skills for Managing Relationship Conflict

According to the Coalition for Marriage, Family and Couples Education, the number one predecessor of divorce is avoiding conflict. Strong relationships are more immune to divorce because the couple handles conflict in a healthy, constructive way.

What about you? If you are reading this blog, you probably feel that your relationship is in danger of falling apart, simply because you and your partner don’t know how to handle conflict well.

Some of the things you may be experiencing are:

Having unrealistic expectations – yes, it’s true; when we first meet each other, we are always trying to make a good impression and be the best we can be. Healthy relationships, however, are ones that realize that when you’ve been together for a while, flaws are a normal things that we all have. As such, we handle them with grace. Are flaws handled with grace in your relationship? Are you constantly feeling like you’re being let down, or letting your partner down?

Lack of trust – this one says it all. Do you feel like you can’t trust your partner? Are broken promises the rule, not the exception, in your relationship? Trust is an integral part of mutual support and understanding – without it, the relationship is lost.

You don’t spend time together – if you isolate yourselves from each other to avoid conflict, you are only creating feelings of mistrust and miscommunication.

Miscommunication – does it feel like the two of you can’t talk without one taking something the wrong way, or the other saying something they didn’t mean? The solution is not to avoid each other; it’s learning how to communicate effectively.
