No study of which we are aware has assessed conflicts, especially among normal or apparently satisfied couples in the Iranian context. This study explored that how women deal with different points, ideas and behaviors in marital life. For the study, we recruited 30 to year-old housewives who visited health centers in Tehran, Iran. In-depth interviews and focus group discussions were used. Themes, including conflicting situations, causes of conflict, consequences of conflict, and conflict resolution styles were extracted.
Sources, Outcomes, and Resolution of Conflicts in Marriage among Iranian women: A qualitative study
A bioecological view of interracial/same-race couple conflict | Emerald Insight
Conflict is, essentially, part of human nature. After Adam sinned in the Garden, conflict ensued. The woman then blamed the serpent. When sin entered the world, so did conflict. In fact, God said that one of the results of sin would be conflict between the man and the woman. The wife would desire to control the husband and the husband would try to dominate the woman by force Gen As we go throughout the biblical narrative, we continually see the fruit of sin displayed in conflict.
Challenges of an Interracial Marriage From Society
Many of the people engaged in stable, well-functioning interracial marriages tend to be older, more educated, and have higher incomes, all factors seen as increasing marital stability. Interracial couples that appear to be more vulnerable to marital difficulties tend to have lower incomes, less education, and limited residence in the United States of a foreign-born partner. The length of residence can amplify cultural differences in the relationship and generate or exacerbate marital discord. Marital stability is also affected by the particular racial combination. Racial prejudice is often cited as a main reason why, in some racial groups, out-marriages are rare and in others are more common.
The purpose if this study is to examine differences in conflict management strategies, relational satisfaction and social support of individuals in same-race and interracial relationships. Additionally, the authors examined associations between self-reported and observed measures of conflict management strategies. Twenty individuals in interracial and same-race relationships were recruited from a large Northeastern US university. Results indicated a few differences in conflict management strategies between individuals in same-race and interracial dyads and no differences in social support or satisfaction. Observational measures of conflict management were largely uncorrelated with their corresponding self-report measures.
