Should couples finish their fight before going to bed, or go to bed angry? On this episode of The Marc and Mandy Show, Marc and Mandy share their opinions. Check out the video above to hear what they have to say on the matter, or keep reading for some tips on resolving fights well before bedtime.
Communication is key
The first step in resolving any argument is to talk it out. Take turns voicing your frustrations and make sure you are listening just as much as you are talking. Your goal should not only be to hear each other out, but to get to the root of the fight. This way, you can prevent future fights.
Getting heated during an argument will only serve to escalate the fight further. Stay calm and rational while you talk through the conflict and get to the root of the problem.
Find middle ground
Compromising is a healthy and effective way to resolve an argument. Sometimes fights can ensue when needs aren’t being met, so finding middle ground might depend on getting to the root of the fight.
Agree to disagree
Sometimes resolving a fight isn’t about being right or wrong and it can healthier to simply hear each other out and agree to disagree on the difference of opinion.
