There are usually fights in a marriage at least occasionally. It doesn’t have to be that way but often is because people just don’t know how to communicate. This is why so many marriages end in divorce. You have to be willing to work on things together and many have a hard time with that. It takes compromise and work. Sometimes working on it feels like its own fight. This one is worth it, though, in most cases.
- The fights in a marriage may may not be so much about the various issues involved, but rather who is in control of the issues.
- All married couples have differences, and some of them were influenced by the families they came from.
- Honest, open dialogue is the key to resolving marital disputes.
“One of the principle reasons certain perpetual problems persist in relationships is that most people are quite good at seeing how their partner is causing problems, yet not so much themselves.”
