Emotions or feelings towards each other are very important in every romantic relationship. On the other hand, being too emotional over certain issues can also damage such relationships. Anger is not the antonym of romance, but it can actually hurt even the most stable partnerships to a point beyond repair. For this reason, you must be able to identify if this malady is starting to infect your partner. The most basic indicator is when you find the cause of outbursts too trivial or the reasons just too inexplicable. The problem can worsen if you have the tendency of meeting every flare-up head on.

If you want to save your relationship, you should not be emotional yourself. Instead, take a more rational approach towards your partner. However, it can be easier said than done. It is not because you do not know how. Anger management can be learned anyway. It is because you are part of the equation. You make up half of the relationship. If your partner considers you as someone he can put the blame on for anything that can get into his nerves, you will certainly be ineffective in calming him. Because of this, you may lack the necessary objectivity in managing his anger.

Expressing how his anger affects you is an appeal to emotion. However, this does not work when the person you are communicating to is already wrapped in his own angry emotions. This might backfire. You can just hear him say that you do not understand him at all. True, your partner needs anger management advice. However, you simply cannot provide this service even if you are an expert in such subject yourself. The best that you can do is to ask help from someone else, a third-party professional who can your partner control his anger. This sounds easy because you may think that you have no role to play. Actually, you do have a very important task before this can be realized. You need to convince your partner to take some time out for this activity. You have to tell him, in your gentlest manner, that he needs help.

It is possible that he can mistake your suggestion for something else. He may think that you are telling him that he needs psychiatric help. Definitely, this misunderstanding can worsen the problem. Just assure him that you are merely seeking means for him to manage his anger. Actually, there are a lot of ways to do this. You may even get advice or consult with someone online. If possible, be with your partner while he listens or reads the advice. This will give him the assurance that you are with him as he tries to learn how to control his anger.

Understanding and Resolving Marital Conflicts - 6 Common Marriage Problems

Relationships, even at their best, are classrooms for some pretty complicated lessons. But relation problems and conflicts are still only lessons - gifts or opportunities for discovery. If you stand and face your marriage problems with a determination to learn how to resolve the underlying conflict, you will grow smarter and stronger - able to create the marriage you desire. One of the keys to resolving marital conflicts lies in understanding the nature of the problem. Here is a list of six-common relationship problems to help you identify potential sources of conflict that need your attention:

1. Unspoken/Unmet Expectations. It's hard to give someone what they want if you don't know what that is. People go from being children and boyfriend-girlfriend to being married and mommy and daddy without much thought or discussion about what that might mean. You can't play new roles with old scripts.

2. Fears and worries. Though they might seem justified, fears and worries create stress; and stress creates illness and unhappiness. Being calm and rational in the face of apparent reasons to be afraid or worried is often the difference between success and failure in all areas of life.

3. Stress. Besides fears and worries, other stressful problems, issues, topics, and activities create chaos in the nervous system and in relationships. You can't be pleasant when you are stressed out; and if you can't be pleasant, you can't have a successful marriage. How often are you stressed out?

4. Outside influences. Family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, television, and other outside influences can often create a distraction that robs precious time from a relationship. It is your responsibility to be someone you'd want to be around if you expect for people to want to be around you. Set priorities.

5. Sex issues. Lack of sex, lack of intimacy, lack of connection, cheating, and other issues related to sex, can create problems for anyone not willing to learn and overcome adversity. No matter how challenging a situation is, keeping your eye on the desired resolution, and consciously taking steps in that direction, is always the best approach. Communication, compassion, love, and understanding will solve any problem you truly want to solve.

6. Lack of communication. Communication solves problems; a lack of communication creates problems. An open heart and an open mind will do a great deal for your communication skills - skills which will serve you in every area of life.

These are just some of the more common relationship problems; but they can all be resolved using the same approach: Listening, Learning, and Loving. Just keep in mind that, if there's a problem, there is a restricted flow of energy, attention, information, or some other vital resource, into that area. Focus on the problem with an intention to resolve it for the better with love and wisdom rather than simply continue to complain about it, or run from it. When you recognize a problem, and declare the resolution you desire, the problem often solves itself. And, even when it doesn't, the right answer, or the right help, always shows up just in time. Knowledge is power. Think about these issues and conflicts and you'll be steps ahead of most people - and much more likely to resolve your problems than run from them.
