Focus on the Family Community: Relationships and Marriage ...

Hello His child....Praise the Lord that the line of communication between you and your wife is still open! That is truly a blessing, so I can understand why you want to be prepared and to make the most of this opportunity.


The most important thing to do of course is to be in prayer and talk to God about it. He knows your situation better than anyone and will give you peace, guidance, and the words to say to your wife.


Also I would say, be a good listener. Just listen to what your wife is trying to communicate to you. It doesn't have to be right or doesn't have to be debated or even have an answer. Just listen and validate her feelings.


I'm not saying that you should not have any input into the conversation, or not to be able to express your concerns; I'm just saying, when it's her turn to speak, try to understand and hear what she is trying to convey to you.


This may sound strange, but in just listening to your wife, it may reveal why she feels the way she does, and what could be done to correct it!


God's Word says...Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry. (James 1:19 NIV)


I'm praying for you both. God Bless!
