OK, so I’m going to begin by talking about a few ways to prevent arguments with your spouse. Later in the video, I’ll talk about what to do if you find yourself in a heated dispute with your partner, but these first few tips are designed to help you avoid getting into arguments in the first place.
Tip #1 - Pick Your Battles
Humans are imperfect creatures, and your spouse is no exception. It’s inevitable that your partner is going to do or say certain t=hings that are going to irritate you… so it’s important to take a step back and really evaluate what’s worth fighting for. Is it really a huge issue if your husband forgets to water the plants? Do you really need to get into a screaming match every time your wife leaves a few dirty dishes in the kitchen? At the end of the day, you need to decide what you can live with, and what’s worth battling for.
Tip #2 - Apply My “30-minute Rule”
One of the most effective methods that I teach to my coaching clients is what I call the “30 minute rule”. It’s a pretty simple concept, really… any time you have a complaint or an issue you want to raise with your spouse that may lead to an argument, wait at least 30 minutes before you broach the subject with your partner.
As simple and dumb as this may sound, you’d be amazed at how often it can prevent an argument from happening. Taking 30 minutes to think things over before bringing up a complaint or issue allows you to cool down, step back, and take a look at the bigger picture. Sometimes you may realize that whatever it was you were upset about isn’t worth an argument, and other times it may just give you time to think about how you can discuss the topic with your partner in a civilized, non-confrontational manner. Which brings me to my next point…
