Marriage Tip #2.


Here we go again for another Marriage Tip 

You can find the previous weeks by clicking on the week
Week 1- Dating/Courting
Week 2- Communication



Week 2- Speak Up
If something is bothering you, it needs to be discussed.  Choose an appropriate time and talk- don't spend it blaming your spouse, but talk about it like adults.  Tell your spouse how you feel and try to come to an equitable solution. Bottled up frustration festers and eventually spews. Keep the inside safe and well 

This is the biggest issue I hear about with friends, well we all need to remember to communicate, they cannot read our minds as much as we wish they could. 
Don't go to bed angry, what if you woke up and they had passed in their sleep, that would make you feel so guilty wouldn't it. 

Communciation is vital 

Proverbs 18:22

He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD.

  3. I do know from experience that communication (or lack of) can make or break a relationship. I'm fortunate enough that in my current relationship, our communication is much better. Still room for improvement but definitely better.

  4. I love the reminder to never go to bed mad and the image below about talking to rather than about each other!!

  5. It is hard when you know someone so thoroughly because you KNOW what is going to upset them and how they are likely to react when they hear something they don't want to... I agree though, gotta get that stuff out in the open right away so resentment doesn't come knocking.

  6. This is very wise advice and sometimes so hard to do. :) Even after 8 years of marriage I still feel like I don't communicate with my husband the way I wish I could. Marriage is always work, but the most fulfilling kind.

  7. This is such an important thing to remember. Effective communication (along with feeling head and validated) would be the answer to many problems.

  10. Very wise advise indeed. My marriage did not have communication at all, and well-- we divorced. I wish I would have know how to express myself better, maybe things would have been different.

  11. I completely agree with this one...and I personally have NO problem speaking up!! If I even try to keep something in it drives me insane!!!

  12. Yep. Couples have to be able to discuss things and work them out. Bottled up thoughts and feelings will eventually blow up into a bigger problem.

  14. Well said. When problems fester, we tend to just get more upset and then argue about things that in the long run are not really big things. It's better to talk about it before it gets out of hand. Thank you for sharing your tips!

  16. Definitely! If you let something go that's really bothering you, you'll just end up getting angry and resentful in the future!
