A successful marriage is not measured by the absence of conflict, but by the presence of conflict resolution, among other factors.
Unfortunately, some couples conclude that their marriage was a mistake because they have conflicts. As a result, they don’t take the time to develop resolution skills, and their marriage deteriorates.
A marriage is more than a legal contract. It is a relationship of common values and a shared life. Yes, problems are unpleasant, but they also provide an opportunity for the couple to grow personally, as well as understand each other if they work at resolving the problems. Conflict is okay!
