Every couple and relationship is unique in its own way. Some couples fall in love instantly, while others take time. Some couples want to get engaged and married right away, while others want to enjoy their relationship and spend time. While every relationship is different, all couples have a few milestones to reach. Sometimes they will have disagreements about where they are, what they want and where they are going. Not every couple can agree on one point in their relationship, as listed below.
1. Oh! Were you flirting with him? True?
Jealousy. If you're both truly connected to each other, it's bound to come off in some way. Another example of conflict is, "Why are you still friends with your ex on Facebook?" (This never ceases to amuse me.)
2. What exactly are you doing on your phone?
Technology. The social media phenomenon is still relatively young. I have something else on my mind. These are the results of an ever-connected world and directly affect marriages. It's unpleasant to feel ignored, which is common when your partner is on their phone when you're together. Some couples develop rules (no phone at the dinner table; no phone after 9pm; not being on your phone while driving, etc.) to avoid this and maintain synchrony. This is clever.
3. How often should you have sex?
“This is the kind of conflict that leads one to have a relationship and can end the partnership. S*x is an essential component of any partnership and meeting our desires within the confines of a relationship is crucial. Sexless marriages are harmful and one should discuss their sexual preferences with their partner and how often or infrequently they want it. If you are unable to resolve this conflict amicably on your own, you should seek the advice of a therapist.
4. How to Deal with Anger
We all have different ways of expressing our anger: some people scream, others isolate themselves, and yet others boil their anger for days before expressing it through petty acts of hatred. Understanding how each spouse handles wrath and how it affects the relationship is crucial. Talk about it when you're both calm and trying to figure out why one (or both) of you is angry and how to convey it without a big bang. Anger is a stop sign, so if you're feeling it take a breath and take a step back.
5. When a partner is jealous
Jealousy is a natural emotion in a loving relationship that we all experience from time to time. A little jealousy is fine, but hiding it can turn into bitterness and insecurity, both of which are dangerous. Even if it leads to an argument, it's important to talk about it, understand why you or your partner feel the way it is, and communicate your true feelings.
6. Family Involvement
When two people marry, they bring their entire family with them, including their step-parents, brothers and sisters, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and grandparents' children. Naturally, this can exacerbate feelings and lead to a family feud involving one or both families. The best thing to do in these situations is to find out where each of you lives and how much or how little your family will be involved in daily activities. Finally, you and your partner must come to a mutually beneficial agreement.
7. You will fight for money that everyone else is doing
Money will be one of the hardest (and seemingly endless) fights you'll have with your partner, especially if you're living together or getting married. Because their debt, spending habits or cheapness suddenly became yours. Also, as financial difficulties are unpleasant, they magnify other problems or snags in the relationship, so this is something you want to resolve as soon as possible.
8. Communication style
A sense of being heard by others and a style of communication Once you resolve this, many of your other problems and conflicts will be healed and you will feel much closer to your partner. I can't tell you how many times my disagreements with my SO turned into fights because I didn't believe the other person understood what I was trying to say. As a result, we learned to take a breath and rewrite our message until we both agreed.
