Do you find yourself yelling at your partner?
Do you deal with a conflictual issue by giving in?
Yelling in the heat of the moment is something most people resort to; however, this normally leads to marriage problems down the road. Your relationship should be characterized by an equal balance between giving and taking. Good communication is one of the most important keys to success. Avoiding yelling at your spouse will help promote good communication and will help keep depression and resentment out of the relationship. Relationship counseling can teach you ways to more effectively deal with your partner and build habits regarding accommodating both needs and wants for both parties involved.
No Communication / Communication Wall
Do you find yourself shutting down when communication is detrimental?
Do you avoid problems?
Do you put off unpleasant conversations?
These patterns of failure to communicate build tension and stress in the relationship. These are very unhealthy and should be avoided. Relationship problems like anxiety, emotional distance, and depression can develop over time. Always try and resolve your issues in a timely manner.
Finding yourself fighting with your spouse?
Verbal or Physical Abuse involved?
Or are you just fighting too much?
Overcoming Adversity can assist couples when they find themselves in, frequent, loud, unpleasant, and meaningless disagreements. Fighting can even lead to controlling behaviors, verbal abuse or physical abuse. Also, be on the lookout for depression to develop later in the relationship as fighting usually means that yelling is involved.
Pushing Problems Under the Rug
Let’s start with what this can lead to: alcoholism, drug addictions, infidelity, compulsive spending, and excessive working. Constantly turning a blind eye toward problems in your relationship will lead to one finding themselves vesting their time outside of the marriage.
Respect Each Others’ Opinions
Make sure you take the time to talk with one another. Make sure to fully talk things through allowing each person to speak and be heard uninterrupted. Interrupting communicates that the other person’s thoughts are not important. Communicating in healthy ways can help couples find a mutually satisfying win-win situation and increased respect for each other’s opinions.
Create healthy relationship habits for years to come.
Two people coming together under one roof can be quite an awakening experience in which expectations do not align with reality. Each of us have different ways of doing things. Finding and understanding the needs of one another before marriage will be most beneficial to ensure that expectations are realistic and both people are on the same page about what life together will be like.
