Discuss the Issue like Adults

Divorce may loom on the horizon if the following four ways of dealing with conflicts mark your marriage:

  1. Silent treatment – ignoring each other for days, months and even years
  2. Exchanging disrespectful words – calling names
  3. Gossiping about each other to others, especially to family members
  4. Sleeping on a separate bed (bedrooms)

When conflict erupts in your marriage, sit around the table and discuss the issue like adults. If you can’t do that, invite someone else to come in between; and it would be great if that someone is not related to you or your spouse and that you both feel comfortable to talk to. ///
