Mind your tongue

The best way to control anger is to stay conscious even in angry situations. Be very particular about what you say, as your words might just hurt your partner. The key to maintain happy relationships, even in stressful situations, is to master your tongue and never let those words spill out of your mouth. 

Scribble it

Penning down your anger into words is a unique way to control it. Just vent it out on a piece of paper, instead of shouting at your spouse. Even if your partner instigates you to fight, just avoid talking to him/her. Another way to avoid the clash is to just get busy with something else, until you calm down. Never be in the same room, else you will pick up fights. Once you are done with the writing part, tear the paper off.  

Be the calmer one

'Two swords cannot fit into one sheath.' This saying is befitting for couples who are short-tempered and fight a lot. If your partner is short-tempered, you should be the one to calm him/her down. An eye for an eye can never be the solution to a fight, instead it worsens it. Do not retaliate when the other person is angry. A little sacrifice on the part of your ego can contribute a lot in pacifying your partner. Make sure you keep your tone low and do not point fingers at each other. Yelling and shouting will do no good to your relationship.

Explain your anger

Women often keep mum after they get upset with their partners. It is a wrong practice to stay quiet as this builds up your anger, making your bond go weak. Women should never presume that their partner will understand what is wrong. It is nearly impossible for another person to truely know what you are going through. So, it will be great if you ask for what your partner feels.

Accept your mistake

Accepting your mistakes makes you a much respected person. In no way it suggests that you are weaker than your companion. So, owning up to your faults bridges the gap between you and your partner. Apologising early can save a lot of unnecessary conflict!


Once his or her mood is back to normal, sit with your beloved and communicate your feelings. A sensible dialogue after every arguement can keep both of you happy forever!
