3 Fights All Couples Have and How they can be Resolved
It’s never pretty to argue with a significant other. It may seem that each disagreement is in fact moving onwards to new ground, but that’s far from the truth.
Here, we assess 3 of the most commonplace arguments among couples and also how to solve them before it’s too late.
1. Desire for attention
We all want to feel needed, but if you don’t let your partner know, he or she will likely never know. So, don’t keep your feelings under lock and key, as those feelings can return to hurt your relationship very seriously.
We do need our partners to give us attention and if we sense we are not getting enough, it can be the cause of an argument. Most arguments that occur may be on the basis for the need of more attention.
Broaching the subject can pose some difficulty. Focus on what it is that you like about one another, and do this as a daily ritual. That way, there’s far more positivity from which to benefit.
2. The in-laws
In-laws that meddle incessantly have been around since the time of the first dawn. And what with the arrival of social media, this meddling can be taken to entirely new heights.
Is there a fix? The spouses each must play a part in addressing this problem. And the mediator role must rest with that spouse who “owns” the meddling parent. If indeed something must be said with respect to changing a parent’s behavior, it must come from their own child.
If in this equation you are the son- or daughter-in law, aim to set some realistic expectations with regard to in-law relations. It’s very possible that you’ll never love them as you do your own parents, but you should endeavor to at least try to like them.
3. Cellphone use
You’ve found that your spouse is turning out to be some tech-crazed geek who persistently hides behind the iPhone whilst at dinner. In which case, perhaps it’s now time to establish some rules. And the fact is that women are as equally guilty of this as are men.
If you’ve chosen to be with someone special to you then that has to be respected, at least for the most part. Consider how your partner feels if he or she is always sitting at the other end of the table watching you “playing” with your phone.
So, if possible, when you go out together on a date, aim to leave the phone at home or in the car. Or, at least turn the thing off during meal or movie time.
