Arguments and crises occur in almost every marriage and even the most agreeable couples have to admit that they’ve fought at least a few times. It’s important to know how to talk through and figure out problems that arise. Honest and open dialogue brings about better outcomes than screaming at and blaming one another. Of course, it’s hard to argue peacefully. When negative emotions come up, it’s hard not to get angry and remain calm.
Keep in mind that the sun comes out after every storm and when everything is explained, the relationship between partners becomes clearer. From every dispute, you need to draw out a conclusion and think about how to painlessly resolve it and how to avoid similar conflicts in the future.
Unresolved issues cause long-lasting dread and can create arguments that last for years, like in this marriage. Otou and Katayama Yumi live in Nara, which is in southern Japan.
