Make a list of the difficulties you two encounter in communicating, and decide which effective communication techniques you would like to employ. Spend roughly 30 minutes each utilizing “I” statements to discuss a somewhat challenging subject. After describing how they feel when their partner does something, the speaker should move on to what they actually need. The listener should demonstrate empathy, paraphrase what the other is saying, and let them know they share their perspective. The goal is to discuss a problem and be able to understand it from your partner’s point of view. The objective is not to “right fight” or “right argue” about your position being right but rather being able to see things from your partner’s view. Both of you should practice being both the speaker and the listener.

Write down what your main source of conflict is and then which strategy or tactic you will use to avoid or resolve this conflict or another conflict and spend about 30 minutes discussing the main source of conflict that you each have regarding the relationship or regarding the other. It will be important to once again follow the communication steps outlined above. Add to this flow of discussion what solution you both will chose to manage the conflict and then write out an actual plan of how you will handle the conflict when you are faced with it. Consider signing an agreement that you will follow your plans.

It’s critical that you can negotiate disagreements in your marriage. The marriages that struggle the most are those whose conflicts are not resolved. Conflict resolution skills and success are usually mutually exclusive. If any of you gets agitated during this conversation, remember to take a pause. Please resume, find harmony, and develop a strategy once you have cooled down. Keep in mind that you must choose a disagreement and work to fix it with the other person.
