    Speaking out about it is a nice place to start. This should be done when you are both calm and preferably in a comfortable place for both of you. Make it clear that your goal is to solve the issue and find our ways to prevent it from happening again. Many conflicts break relationships because of people’s ego. If you’re not willing to compromise even when you have the upper hand it becomes a competition. If this conversation doesn’t work, identify someone neutral who you both trust and ask them to mediate and join you in solving the issue. This mediator should not be closer or more connected to one of you than the other. The more unbiased they are the higher the chances of you two fixing the problem.

    Communication is key and knowing how to speak to your partner in different circumstances helps. Some people have anger issues or may want to cool down before discussing uncomfortable conflict in the relationship. Choosing the right place and time to handle the conflict is also important. It can even determine if you will solve it or not. I’ve heard of people using gifts, money, and even make-up-sex as a reward, though that can at times postpone the needed reconciliation.
