Ways to Resolve Discord

It is imperative that both partners accept the “influence” of others. Typically in relationships, there is a top and a bottom, and the top has ultimate veto power. Relationships are most effective when each party has equal veto power with most issues. Further, Dr. Gottman found that in the happiest of marriages, men accepted the “influence” of their partners. Examples of “influence” include a belief that you can learn from your partner, not rejecting their opinions and believing that they can also come up with good solutions.

Relationships that partners repair successfully are successful and work very well. This means that during a debate, functional parties find a solution to an issue or disagreement. When a couple settles a dispute, issues are dealt with at that moment and do not compound and come up again in a later dispute. Furthermore, it’s important to have a partner who can apologize. It takes guts and confidence to admit when you are mistaken, but doing so can help you have a caring relationship and lessen tension. It’s beneficial to provide a space where negativity can be broken. Without dismissing the other, one can utilize humor, offer their partner a cup of coffee or tea after the disagreement, ask for a hug, or make light of the situation. Make-up intimacy reunites the partners and aids in bringing about harmony. Additionally, it is crucial to feel certain that your partner will appreciate your attempts to make things better and vice versa.

Compromise is key to building trust and engagement and ensuring security. Feeling or noticing that your partner backs down when you have a disagreement can be reassuring. “Black and white thinking” such as “I’m right, so you must be wrong” can be dangerous. Couples need to be able to argue and share power in order to be successful.
