Conflict is a necessary and unavoidable part of being in a relationship. The anger that often is generated by the conflict as well as the differences between partners cause many in relationships to create conflict that is hurtful, destructive and ineffective. Healthy conflict results in understanding and resolutions which deepen the partners' connection to each other and greater mutual understanding. The goal of any conflict is not victory, but progress. Conflict can be positive without much hurt.
