Around the world, many people are dealing with increased stress levels even as they’re spending more time at home. This isn’t the ideal formula for domestic bliss.
The good news is that the occasional disagreement with your partner can be good for your relationship.
Arguments that arise from sharing a life can be positive because they teach you and your partner to compromise. To make the conflict productive, each party should show concern for the other’s well being and focus only on the issue at hand. An argument should focus only on the current discussion, and not attempt to cover the full history of the relationship.
The goal of a given fight is to reach a compromise without damaging the relationship in the process. Assigning blame during an argument is a bad strategy because it will alienate your partner. It places the burden of fixing the problem on one person, when most problems can’t be resolved alone.
