So many time’s I’ve seen and heard couples talk bad about each other. I’ve been guilty of it myself in the past. It’s a conscious thing that you do. You make the decision to talk bad about your spouse. It does nothing good for your marriage and only makes you bitter.
Yet, all too many times, spouses will talk bad about their spouse. Be it in passing, in simple conversation, or intentionally. I’ve seen first hand what it can do to your spouse, you, and your marriage. It can take something so precious and turn it inside out. It can break trust and sour feelings. Calling up friends or family. Hanging out and talking bad about them. There are many different ways of doing it. Even just thoughts can poison you.
You have to make that intentional action to not talk bad about your spouse. It’s harder than it sounds. When you are upset, it is so easy to just spit out whatever you’re feeling at that time and just be mean.
God did not create marriage for us to talk bad about or to each other. So remember to treasure that covenant
Mark 10:6-9 NIV
6 “But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female.’
7 ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,
8 and the two will become one flesh.’So they are no longer two, but one flesh.
9 Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
So try your hardest and stop talking bad about your spouse and start being positive.
