Why is it important to resolve conflicts in a marriage?
Well what kind of marriage would it be if you are always in conflict and don' resolve them? Hello divorce!
OR, you can resolve conflict WITH divorce. (Slightly different from not resolving conflict and getting divorced because of it, I think. ) Then again, though, there are those couples who have been married for - like - 40/50 years and acting as if they hate each other the whole time! (They're a real hoot to be around. )
Flightkeeper, It really won't be a relationship if you are always in conflicts and don't resolve then in a healthy manner. It's sad to say, but if handled correctly, it will lead to a divorce. Thanks for posting.
Isn't human nature to have conflicts of some sort in any relationship? I think it's important for married people to try to understand eachother-to prevent conflict. But, sometimes you just have to agree to disagree-if you want to have a healthy relationship.
More than resolving conflicts , its more important to know how the other one thinks, you might want to avoid conflicts, in the long run, where not many journey........
conflicts in a marriage are so wearisome. Some are not too easy to resolve, and some you never resolve, just agree to differ at times....
No one really likes sleeping on the couch too often. Besides, if you are going to bother going through the motions of getting married and thus making a covenant with a woman it behooves you to do everything to perform maintenance and repair where that covenant has received damage.
It's important to resolve conflict in any type of relationship. Resolving conflict doesn't mean that someone has to "lose." You could agree to disagree.
...but it's better to be the person who wins. (Sorry. I'm only kidding. Couldn't resist. )
I agree with you Contrite. Resolving conflicts in a correct manner in a relationship is about love and peace. Thanks for posting.
I feel that both people have to have it in there heart to solve the conflict.. Some people never want it solved... an excuse to get a divorce..
I have found that men are less likely to talk about the issue with a woman. They are fearful.. They might fight a war but they cannot face a woman...
I think it's important when resolving conflict in relationship that each spouse consider the others point of view valid, rather then dismissing it off hand.
Saying, "I'm open to your views dear, this is my opinion only, you have a valid point, I'm listening." All are important. Bullheadiness never works.
luvpassion, It's important to me also. We are all unique, so that makes us have different view on things. Thanks for sharing your input.
hopefully, when one got married they weren't drunk or in a hurry and took the time to establish a sure foundation for communication first. If that has been established then there will always be something to go back to. If that wasn't done then the marriage may not be all that valid and may need to be recreated whenever both parties are willing to save the ill-begotten thing.
Conflicts arise in any relationship. But the most important part is how we behave and treat each other when the conflicts happen, as well as when resolving them. Being mean, condescending, spiteful, hurtful, etc, will only continue to build contempt, anger, and hurt. These are not ingredients that you want in any relationship. Argue fairly, resolve mutually, and make up extensively!!! Living in constant conflict will continue to weigh heavier and heavier on any relationship. There is only so much conflict a human being will tolerate without moving into the FIGHT OR FLIGHT part of their brain. Then it's all down hill from there.

By nature it is the isolationists, disgruntled and annoyed atheists who venture to create the conflicts.The peaceful followers of the Revealed Religion don’t do it; they only give the Message of peace.
