Conflict Resolution In Relationship And Marriage. George and Sally fell in love with each other. They were so happy, they knew God was in it. They had prayed, fasted, and involved their pastors along. They were so sure it is going to be a time of heaven on earth.

Sally had a lot of childhood expectations for herself and the love of her life. She had plans and had her imagination filled with how they would live together in courtship. To her greatest surprise, not too long into their courtship, they started having clashes.

George was insensitive with his words and often passed unpleasant jokes and comments about Sally. Sally on the other hand was being overly sensitive. This continued for a long time until they both began to contemplate going their separate ways.

It was a rude shock to Sally that despite being in the center of God’s will they still have issues. The problem is that she is not even sure what she is doing wrong. If she must save her courtship she must know how to handle issues between them.

She decided to write out the things they were doing wrong in their courtship. She came up with the following.

Conflict Resolution In Relationship And Marriage

  1. They were shouting at each other. 
  2. They were accusing each other. 
  3. They were full of retaliation. 
  4. Rather than listen to one another, they would defend themselves. 
  5. They both wanted to win the argument. 
  6. They were fond of reporting one another. 
  7. They will keep malice for days and they both found it difficult to forgive and let go.   After writing about all the problems they were facing in their relationship, She had a light bulb moment. Those were the things they should never do to each other. They must find a way to eliminate and handle the issues correctly.

On the other hand, the Johnsons have been married for three years and their marriage seems to go through high waters.  They seem to argue over everything.  It didn’t look like they went through courtship. Their differences seem so much and they don’t know how to manage them. Mrs. Johnson could not take any of these again, it was already affecting her health. They tried a few times to stop the incessant quarrels but soon they were back to square one.

There were times it got so bad, and other times they tried managing themselves. What could be wrong with us? She started to ask some questions. As she sat before me, I proffered some solutions to their issues. Here are some things she learned.

Conflict Resolution In Relationship And Marriage

  1. Be positive. Think good of each other. Don’t assume.
  2. Identify the problem. Do not muddle things up
  3. Never attack your spouse. You’re a team.
  4. Express your feelings in love. Be considerate
  5. See any mistake as our mistake.  
  6. Never be too big to apologize. 
  7. Be prayerful and learn to talk to God
  8. Seek a professional counselor, not a family member to help resolve the conflict.

With these tips, she and her husband are on their way to recovering their marriage. Mrs. Johnson was determined more than ever before to do everything in her path to enjoy bliss in her marriage.

In the same way, we must be determined to seek help and do all we can to ensure our marriage is great! Conflict Resolution In Relationship And Marriage
