Are you and your spouse arguing a lot lately? Would marriage counseling help? In marriage, arguments are inevitable. Relationships have their ups and downs after all and arguing can actually be a contributor to a healthy marriage. However, if arguments are getting too frequent and escalate severely from seemingly small things, it’s a good idea to think things through. A look upon one’s self done by both spouses can help greatly in improving the relationship. Knowing Yourself Impacts Relationships Psych Central points out that knowing yourself is an important part of having a healthy relationship – any kind of relationship. In many personal relationships, such as marriage, two opposite extremes may occur. One is getting obsessed with having all your needs fulfilled while the other is setting your needs aside to the point of losing touch of who you are.

Marriage is about love, acceptance, and solace. Often, your spouse has the best intentions whenever he/she makes a valid observation about your physical appearance. This only shows that your partner cares a lot about you and wants you to be the best that you can be. People who have gained weight and are unable to manage weight loss successfully, however, may go through an inner conflict because of their physical situation. Those who are in a marriage or relationship can be particularly sensitive, as physical attractiveness does have a lot to do with intimacy. So when your partner makes comments about your recent weight gain, it is understandable to feel a little hurt, frustrated, or even angry.

Various sources of stress in life can push you to your limits. Respondents to the 2014 Stress in America survey, commissioned by the American Psychological Association, say that work comes in at a close second to money as a source of stress. When work issues negatively affect your financial stability, the stress certainly heightens. What is even more concerning is the high potential for job stress to take a toll on your health and even shorten your lifespan. Aside from keeping you up at night or straining your eyes all day, you would also tend to develop unhealthy habits like skipping meals (or consuming plenty of them throughout the day) and skipping hours of sleep intentionally. These bad habits can weaken your immunity or load your body with toxins, which can lead to serious diseases like hypertension and obesity.

This is a question that many have pondered on time and again, and while there are countless different answers, they all seem to possess one common trait – happiness. As many counsellors and life coaches have pointed out, a perfect marriage doesn’t necessarily mean an absence of sadness, but rather the ability to give happiness at any given moment. Experts have also pointed out that while marriage is all about communication, it should also allow each party to find personal growth and self-fulfillment. It is important to remember that there are two people in a relationship, and that they both need to find success and happiness as individuals as well.

Life coaching in Orange County and elsewhere aims to bring out the full potential of couples. If for example both partners find themselves focusing too much on the kids and their respective jobs, and barely have time for a romantic date, life coaches can help them find ways around their schedules to keep their romantic lives fulfilling. People need not be afraid to ask for help and guidance, because the world is a jungle where you can easily find yourself getting lost at the next corner, no matter how familiar the surroundings are. Learning how to navigate the world and maximizing the strengths of both parties in a union would need the assistance of life coaches as guides to that journey.

The most common reasons why couples fight usually root from misunderstanding. One may misinterpret his/her partner’s words or actions, which leads to confrontation. One may also fail to comprehend what the other’s points of view or feelings are, which could make him/her seem indifferent or difficult to interact with. However, there are times when there is a real reason to fight. It could be a mistake of a spouse in handling the household’s money or conflicting approaches to bringing up a child. In many cases, both persons in the relationship have some fault in the fight. This shared ownership of the problem can be uncovered through marriage counseling in Orange County, where the marriage counselor allows the partners to realize and admit that each of them has misinterpreted the situation or committed some lapse. There could be instances, though, when one of them feels like he/she is the only one holding the relationship back or putting strains on it.
