Questions we ask ourselves about anger in marriage:

What does the bible say about a toxic spouse? God does not give us a spirit of fear but of courage and a sound mind. A toxic spouse can create a space of fear where one feels uncomfortable communicating or sharing personal needs.

When your spouse is displaying toxic traits, be sure to take note of actions that are triggering you. Begin to pray about your needs and ask God for words to share that will touch their heart.

When there is a space for you to be vulnerable, discuss how your spouse’s actions make you feel with them.

What does the Bible say about hard times in your marriage?

There is no way around trials in your marriage, be it communication, raising children, or evolving into a more mature version of yourself. There will be some things that test the limits of your love for one of another.

The Bible says, “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.” Ephesians 5:25 What strikes me about this verse is “gave himself up for her” in marriage, you are in a constant state of giving yourself up for your spouse. You will have to choose to love, choose to move forward, and choose to shift your perspective.

What does the Bible say about resolving conflict in a marriage?

The Bible says, “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” (Proverbs 15:1). Conflict rises, and the best way to combat the flesh is first to take your cares to the alter.

Personally, one of the best ways my husband and I have handled conflict is to remember how we want to be handled during the conflict. Yes, we have both lost our temper during an argument, but we circle back with love.

What does the bible say about being angry with your spouse?

Ephesians 4:26-27 — ” Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil.”

This scripture is written o my heart… I think about it often when my anger is taking over, and I want to sit in it because I feel like my spouse should feel the wrath of my anger.

Yes, I’ve done the turn your back in the bed move… but that doesn’t help us solve the problem. Now I like to tell myself, “Let’s shift the atmosphere” I tend to silently pray and ask God to share how to remove the anger from my thoughts.
What does god say about angry husbands?

Psalm 37:8 — “Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.”

The Bible says that men should refrain from anger; as I shared earlier, the Bible also stated that men should LOVE their wives like Christ loves the church… But what does that mean?

When I think about how Christ loves the church, I think about the care it takes to grow, strengthen and build a healthy church. I think about the attention it takes and how you must show up each day to take steps towards the church’s mission. I think of sweet, sweet care.

What comes to mind when you think about how Christ Loves the church? Could you share with me in a comment below?

On A Personal Note:

There is no such thing as a perfect marriage. True righteousness comes when rainy days are long and hard. Anger arose in our marriage after the children came, and we had to split our time.

It takes time to learn how to balance marriage, parenthood, or life, for that matter. As a wife, I had to take time to remember how important my marriage was to me… I was consumed by motherhood. We had to take the issue to our Christian counselor and implement the steps they gave us.

With us marrying young (21.22), we grew up together and have had to evolve as we grew older. (More about marriage)
