  • 1. Arguments and Marriage - What is Your Groundhog Day Issue? http://www.saving-relationships.comAll relationships involve disagreements and indeed arguments from time to time. It iscommon for couples who have been married for a significant period of time to havewhat could be termed a “Groundhog Day” issue.You may remember the movie where Bill Murray woke up day after day after day andlived the same day over and over again. That is the premise of this issue, where youfind yourself rehashing the same issue over and over again whenever you and yourspouse have an argument. This can be irritating and very frustrating for both of you.
  • 2. If you are feeling like you are experiencing this symptom and are having issues in yourrelationship because of it, you are probably right. Over time, if not addressed, thispattern of “picking at the same scab” can indeed cause damage to your relationshipand your marriage. So today, let’s look at how you can resolve this and perhaps putyour “Groundhog Day” issue to bed once and for all.
  • 3. 1) Identify Your Groundhog Day IssueThe first step in resolving this conflict is to identity what the issue is that keeps beingbrought up again and again. For some, this is very easy and the issue is obvious. Forothers, it may take a bit closer look. If you feel like you are not completely positive ofwhat keeps being brought into your arguments with your spouse, begin to make notesand perhaps a list of the issues that we involved in your disagreement.This practice accomplishes two things. First, it will help you to stay conscious of yourinteractions with your spouse. And secondly, and more to the point, it will help you toidentify patterns and recurring themes that come up when you have an argument.These patterns are what will show you what your core issues are.
  • 4. 2) Bring Up The IssueOnce you feel like you have identified the recurring issue, bring it up to your spouseand discuss it. Point out to them that this issue keeps being thrown out there and it issomething that you return to over and over during a conflict. Ask them if they havenoticed the same thing.More often than not, your spouse will already know that this issue is indeed one thatis brought up time and time again. But particularly when it is documented, it can be asurprise just how often it is.
  • 5. 3) Talk Out The IssueOnce the two of you have agreed as to what the Groundhog Day issue truly is, askyourselves why it is you have not resolved it to this point. Maybe you simply need tohear from your spouse that they hear you and respect your opinion, but they simplydisagree or have a different viewpoint on the matter. Often times it is simply an issuethat you or your spouse feel like they never received an apology for.Whatever the issue is, it is best to drag it out into the open and discuss it with yourspouse when emotions are not high and you can examine them and discuss them in acalm and rational manner.
