Over the last couple of episodes, I have been looking at what wrecks marriage. First, I discussed Expectations. Then, I discussed Disconnection. In this episode, we look at another “Marriage Wrecker”: Conflict. Yes, I know, plenty of people will tell you that conflict is inevitable in marriage. And it is certainly true that every marriage… any relationship that is as intimate as marriage… is going to include disagreements and differences-of-opinions. That is not the question. The question is, how do you deal with the disagreements? How do you do conflict? If you aren’t careful, conflict can wreck your marriage. Why? Because it often becomes adversarial — going for the win, not for the relationship. In this episode of the Save The Marriage Podcast, we look at how conflict can wreck your marriage… or how you can keep it from happening. Listen below.
