Every conflict successfully managed provides an opportunity for more intimacy and understanding. By the same token, every conflict that is avoided leads to more distance and lack of communication.
Keys to successful conflict management:
Use respectful language.
Stay focused on the present topic.
Wait you turn to speak.
Avoid inflammatory language, derogatory names, or anything that may upset the other person.
Always be ready for compromise - if you win the couple loses.
