How to Put Conflict to R-E-S-T in Your Marriage

Jun 01, 2015 / Communication     

A conflict-free marriage is not reality. But you can learn to resolve conflict well. So here are 3 ways to put conflict to R-E-S-T in your marriage. The R in R-E-S-T stands for Review…review the problem. Pinpoint the exact issue of the conflict and get on the same page. The E stands for Evaluate…evaluate options. Have a brainstorm session with your spouse—discussing different ideas, solutions, and compromises. S is for Solve…solve the problem. Together with your spouse, choose a solution and put it into action. The T stands for track…track your progress. Set a time to follow up on how your solution is working.
