Everyone has problems in their marriage—situations they’d like God to fix. You pray and you pray and it seems like nothing is happening. What’s going on?
Keeping the relationship is of paramount importance in marriage. The goal of a disagreement is not to win the argument, it’s to win your spouse.
After you pinpoint the problem, calm the emotions, and listen to your spouse's side, start by making a proposal for a solution you can both live with.
In an argument, when you listen attentively to your response it goes a long way toward making you feel better and diffuse the argument.
