Tips And Tricks To Solve Marital Problems And Avoid The Couch

Large

Arguing with your partner is bound to happen, especially if you are both stressed out about things or cannot seem to get on the same page about a specific topic. There have been countless books and pieces on how to communicate better and how to have relationships with better communication. From talkshows to professions everyone has theories as to how to make relationships between partners more lasting and effective. This is why we’ve taken the time to compile a list of tips and tricks to help couples get out of the arguing mood when they begin to disagree or just avoid it altogether. 

Choose When To Talk And Listen 

An important tip to consider when conversing with your partner is realizing when it’s time to talk and when it’s time to take a step back and really listen to what they have to say. This could either be when they are talking normally about their day, or when you are in the middle of a heated discussion or argument and notice that no one is really listening to the other person. Remember to take a step, and a deep breathe, and do a little recap. 

It’s I Not You 

This is important when you are trying to explain why something bothered you or why you would prefer if it doesn’t happen again. Going on the attack and using you especially when you are pointing out things you don’t like or actions that annoy or bother you rarely works in the long run, and only makes your partner feel bad. Instead using statements like “I feel” or “I see it like this” allows your partner to understand what’s happening on your side. Doing this you’ll often find that they didn’t even see your perspective and you showed them a different one.

It’s Cool To Compromise 

Sometimes in marriage and partnership, the word compromise will be an important theme. Especially if there are things you just won’t see eye to eye towards. Not all of them will be serious but most of them will be a compromise on either side. Whether it’s picking french schools not English, or spending the holidays with one side of the family over the other, or even as saving that dress for another night. All of these are examples of compromise, and compromise is one of the necessary steps to allow a relationship to flourish. 

It’s important to note that these helpful tips won’t magically solve all the relationship and marriage problems, but they help us communicate better with each other. With better communication comes better understanding and then better relationships, and no sleeping on the couch.
