This week's blog is on 5 ways to stop arguments in your relationship. Here are some further articles about this.

How to Stop Arguing "Every couple--no matter how well they communicate in a relationship--has times where they disagree. At the same time, this doesn't have to turn into a fight! How to stop arguing is one of the biggest relationship problems many marriages face. Luckily, you can learn to stop fighting by mastering key communication skills. "

How to Stop Arguing and Actually Solve Your Relationship Problems "When you first get upset or angry with your significant other, there are almost always two problems: your emotions and the actual problem.

5 Ways to Stop an Argument in Less Than a Minute "The trouble with arguments is that they don’t work.

I mean arguments – where tension starts to rise, responses start to get personal, and you go around in circles without getting anywhere."
