7 GROUND RULES FOR ARGUING WITH YOUR SPOUSE...

I know we all will fight and argue in marriage or any relationship, but we need some rules in place if we are going to argue
1. Respect your spouse. 
2. Never threaten divorce. NEVER! 
3. Don't bring up your spouse's past mistakes. Forgive & move on. 


4. Listen more than you talk. 

5. Don't lose your temper. It never helps anything.
6. Don't try and "win" the argument. You're on the same team. 
7. Seek first to understand ... and then to be understood.

  2. I have a hard time with number 3. I tend to take his past mistakes and throw them in his face even though he is actively working on the problem. Thanks for the great tips!

  5. All wise and practical tips. I struggle with them all. Such is the fight of spirit against flesh. I am constantly reminding myself (and my spouse) that we are on the same team. It seems to help put all the other items into better perspective.
