While virtually everybody would gladly embark on a marital journey, many people sadly do so without any idea on how to manage conflicts. When a man and woman live together in close proximity as is the case in the modern era, CONFLICTS are bound to arise. The way and manner they handle the brouhaha will determine the outcome of the marriage or relationship.
Do they sit down to talk things over, knowing that life is all about give and take? Do they flex their muscles and resort to exchange of blows? The choice is theirs! However when husband and wife fight each other, there is no winner. There are just 2 lousy losers, palpitating towards their precipice unaware of the impending calamity.
No man ever marries a woman so as to batter her to stupor and no woman ever marries a man so as to verbally abuse him to nothingness but along the way things happen and the race to Armageddon commences. But this never happen overnight and that is why it is highly advisable that all marriages and relationships should be equipped with early warning system with detective mechanisms.
Couple who establish clear rules on how to manage their conflicts will continue to re-invent their marital bliss. No matter what, family life must never be allowed to grind to a halt. Even when there is cold war or the rage is livid, both the man and woman must continue to perform their respective duties. Father must not withhold the funds, if he is the breadwinner and the wife must endeavour to serve pudendum no matter the urge to become stingy with it as punitive measures.
It is sad to note that many cohabiting partners now go to the gym to acquire the necessary muscles for a free for all fight between the couple, but is this what marriage is all about? Of what use is it for you to win all the arguments but then lose your spouse?
Marriage can be a very beautiful adventure. But it up to the parties involved to make that happen. If they get things right, they will enthrone a wonderful marital bliss but if they get it wrong, they will experience that hell a person can see before the other one.
