An argument-free marriage? Sounds too good to be true right?
Not really! It CAN be your situation. I’m a testament to that.
In our marriage, I was more likely to be the one to lead us into an argument. Not because I like to argue, but because I’ve been so accustomed to not being heard or not given the benefit of the doubt in the past that I always felt the need to argue my case. Smh — thank God for growth!
I very much liked this text and the approach it used in unpacking its subject matter. My husband and I recently celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary and a major goal in this last year was increased communication and intentional conversations during disagreements. I loved that the 28 day devotional was set up to be read by the husband and wife together.
We enjoy a very peaceful household now because we’ve learned how to communicate our opinions and share when we’ve been hurt or offended and to really LISTEN to HEAR what’s being said (and not to just respond).
Believe it or not, we make the choice to enter into an argument. You CAN make a statement without letting your anger escalate the conversation. You CAN choose to disagree AND you CAN have PEACE at the end of EVERY DAY!
If you struggle to do so now, pick up this text and incorporate some of the techniques it describes. It may not solve all of your problems, but it’s likely to be a big help if you’ll commit to doing the internal work necessary to aid the overall process.
I would highly recommend this text to newlyweds and any couple looking to strengthen their relationship and communication with one another!
