Are You Always Fighting with Your Spouse?

Nov 09, 2011 / General     

Maybe you’ve had a bad day at the office, or you’re stressed about the bills. You’re grouchy, you’re ready to unload, and you let the words fly. You take out your frustration on your mate hoping they’ll take the bait. Well, there’s a better way to vent.  Instead of creating conflict, try these 3 ways to fight conflict in your marriage.  When you see your spouse, just say, "I’m cranky." They’ll ask why, and that’s when you get to let it all out—but more like a report instead of an attack. Your mate can be the comforter and the one who cheers you up. You’ll still get to vent, but without the damaging consequences of a full-blown fight. To help you get started, here are 5 ways to make your marriage joyful.
