In the Blink of an Eye

At times, marriage can be difficult. Fighting in marriage can happen at a moment’s notice. Actually conflicts can begin in the blink of an eye. One of the best ways to resolve a conflict is to catch it before it escalates. The best way to resolve a conflict is to recognize it before a word is spoken.

How to Resolve Conflicts in Marriage

Donna and Tim (not their actual names), married four years, reflected. “We are so in love I know what he is thinking,” stated Donna. “Yeah,” replied Tim, “I never get to finish my sentences, she…” “I finish them for you!,” butted Donna with enthusiasm. Tim, looked down at his shoes, the expression of frustration and sadness was captured by everyone in the room. It seemed everyone got it except Donna who was still beaming, a legend in her own mind.

Winning your husband over 'without words'

Scripture reference:   1 Peter 3:1-2 
"Wives, in the same way be submissive to your husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your behavior."

Is The Ship Worth Saving?

  

How about a relation-Ship?  When it has run aground and taking on water is it worth trying to patch the holes or should you just abandon ship?  Another broken relationship.  Another sunk ship.
 

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

 Then why do it?  Of course people break up because they don’t get along any more.  Fights, anger, sarcasm and silence, the uncomfortable moments of being together afraid to say anything.  Today, I was on a cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico, day three.  A young couple sat at a nearby table, eating breakfast, neither said anything to each other for 45
