The first answer is to show your own maturity. Emotional understanding is a high priority when a relationship starts but soon it is seen that logical reasoning gets in the way. If it occurs that your partner is immature, instead of venting the anger on him, it is essential that you communicate more and understand the problem and explain to your partner the solution. It is important to start the communication in an organized way and with a goal in sight rather than starting the communication with anger or emotion. If your partner wants to speak, let him speak his mind as well. Make sure that you yourself get the point which your partner is trying to make before commenting and advising your partner. While your partner speaks, do not try to interrupt the conversation. Instead try to lighten up the situation whenever it gets tense with jokes and laughs. Whenever you are confused as to what your partner wants to say, seek explanations.
After you understand your partner, try to put your point across in a manner that he understands and without being accusatory in any way. Also, it is essential that you find out the positive sides as well when having an argument rather than looking only at the negative sides. So if any fruitful result has been reached or your partner has understood anything after you explained count that as a positive thing. Acting rash would never help. You would have to act responsibly if your partner does not show signs of responsibility. So do not ever bring your ego into the relationship and do not get into an argument to win it. If you feel your partner has got more hold of the situation and your partner is right, acknowledge it without any grudges.
Another area you could work on so as to handle your partner and the relationship better is to find out those areas of immaturity which you could tolerate. After all, it is some of his immature acts that made him appeal to you. Only try to change those aspects which you believe are harmful not only to your partner but also to the relationship.
