HOW TO ELIMINATE AVOIDABLE CONFLICT IN MARRIAGE
By Tomi Toluhi
A certain degree of conflict is good and healthy in a relationship. However, if your marriage is one long battle, when do you actually get to take off the boxing gloves and enjoy being married? Marriage was meant to be enjoyed not to be endured. There are some elements of endurance involved in any healthy marriage but the overarching theme should be enjoyment. Otherwise, why would anyone want to get married? God designed marriage to make our lives better, not bitter.
One of the keys to a happy marriage is eliminating avoidable conflict. Day to day living has more than enough sources of friction without adding in marital conflict that could have been avoided with a little foresight and wisdom. Your home should be your haven; a shelter from the storms of life and a place of rest and recuperation. This is why it pays to invest in a harmonious marriage.
Someone might be saying, ‘If my spouse did their part, our marriage would be harmonious’. Thinking like that will leave you feeling disempowered because the reality is that you have no control over your spouse’s behaviour. However, you do have control over yours so that’s where your focus should lie. Do your part to promote harmony in your marriage.
