I don't like to when I'm super pissed off I like to wait till I'm calm or when the kids are in bed so if I get mad it's ok and I don't have to hide how I truly feel


Communication. But its a two way street so when she shuts down it doesnt help either of us


Sometimes we handle it well. And sometimes we handle it poorly. It's something that is constantly being worked on. The moment where you want to lash out is the moment that requires the most restraint and will allow you to better handle disputes more effectively and compassionately when mastered. Control your emotions. Don't let them control you.
Not very well. I definitely need time outs. But they are not accepted so therefore everything always explodes.

Not ideally.


I CANT HANDLE IT. DEPENDING ON THE SITUATION AND HIS ATTITUDE WILL DICTATE MY RESPONSE.


Conflict is not handled well. Seems that your way is the only way and even with examples of hypocritical actions and expectaions all that is agreed on is the fact that stuberness will result and no changes or compromise or solutions are at hand.
Better to allow for the wrong of one and the none willing to address him with issues than to upset him, better to expect me to confirm and deal with it than to be one and string together than to loose his "love or blessings".


Communicate. If that fails, conquer.

Carefully. It won't let me answer in the normal place.

We just talk about it. As soon as it comes up we just start talk it out honestly and openly. It is by far the best way!


No very well but I'm trying to become better at it


We just talk about it. As soon as it comes up we just start talk it out honestly and openly. It is by far the best way! No matter what it is, we both agree to listen to one another and not get defensive or close minded. We have an amazing relationship that is based on honesty, trust and commitment!


I like expressing my feelings. I like to talk about them so it doesn't boil over...he doesn't


By getting drunk and flipping out. And that really doesn't work. I feel so bad today that I just want to curl up and never leave my bed again.

I don't really handle conflict well. It's something I need to work on.


I could be wrong but I think I do well. I guess time will tell.
