My husband and I are having problems with conflict resolution. Whenever we have a discussion about something slightly 'controversial' or sensitive to either one of us, it turns into a full blown argument. I feel he's very attacking. He feels the same. I felt tonight that he just didn't listen and laid blame blame blame all on me. I don't know what to do. Most of the time I'm happy but really unhappy with being un able to have a difficult effective conversation ☹☹
We have just started a new business, all his decision, and money is tight for first time in our relationship, which is not helping. Yeh i hear counselling but time & money is a factor. Thanks in advance ppl 😕

My DH and I had very similar issue and can honestly say that counseling has been fantastic. It gave us ways of being able to communicate effectively without the big blow ups! Don't get me wrong we are not 100% 'fixed' and still have our moments of frustration but we have learnt to talk to each other in a way the works through the problems instead of putting the blame on each other. Relationships Australia were great and we had the first 2 sessions free and the rest were based on our income but because we had to travel nearly an hour to our closest clinic our counsellor gave us a 50% discount so only worked out to be $45 per fortnight. I really recommend giving them a call.
