Marital Conflict

Marital Conflict

Webster’s Dictionary defines conflict as “the mental struggle resulting from incompatible or opposing needs, drives, wishes, of external or internal demands.”  When examining this dynamic within a marital construct the conflict is most likely engaging one or more of the following subjects:

  • Free Time
  • Money
  • Housework
  • Physical Intimacy
  • Extended Family

Learning to address all areas of disagreement between a married couple involves in depth exploration of these subjects and more. Therapy addressing such concerns means to work with a professional who will guide the couple through developing new mindsets, help them identify the issues, localize the problem while avoiding globalization of issues, exploring what is agreed upon as a couple, helping look beyond the surface of the disagreement, and exercising acceptance between partners.
