Conflict Resolution: learn how you and your spouse tend to deal with conflict.

Every couple experiences conflict, and – let’s face it – every couple has problems!

The question is: How do you tend to view, treat, and communicate with your spouse when you’re tackling tough problems?

And, how does your spouse tend to deal?

Knowing the answers to these questions will help you work as a team when tackling issues, instead of occasional enemies!

Watch as Andy and Katy Gillis take you through an exercise that will help you identify how each of you handles conflict so you can better work together and you both can win:

Of course!) we’ve got an amazing couple worksheet for you, that you can download here: Conflict Resolution Worksheet

We’ve found that every couple has a unique dynamic, and no one is “naturally good” at resolving conflict, because conflict resolution is a skill.

Thankfully, it’s a skill we can all learn and get even better at 🙂

Resolving conflict leads to growth, positive change, and even deeper intimacy in your relationship…and so we’re talking about it on the show this week!

Strengths and Growth Areas in Your Marriage

“Strengths develop by working through issues.”

Being married for 11 years now, we know that’s right!

Do you feel that you and your spouse:
– Share feelings and understand each other?
– Appreciate each other’s personality and habits?
– Feel good about sexual intimacy and affection?
– Agree on how to share decision-making and responsibilities?

Even if a relationship is good, it can always get better, and last week’s show provided an excellent opportunity for growth!

Watch as we dive into 9 key couple areas and show you how to discover which ones are strengths, and which ones are growth areas in your own relationship:

No matter where you are in your relationship – if you’re dating, engaged, newlywed, married a while, or empty-nesters – you can use this tool to strengthen your relationship and enjoy deeper intimacy with your spouse.

The benefit from knowing your unique strength and growth areas is awareness.  If you know how your spouse feels about each area, and you define how you feel about that same area, you are able to come together and have a conversation about the differences.

Once you can discuss it, you can put a plan of action together for how you will help make the growth area a strength in your marriage.

One important point to consider is that most couples will have different answers, and different is not bad – it’s just different.

The goal is to become aware of how you both feel, communicate about it, and then work to grow into an even better team.
