As a Christian, o are not alone if you have ever felt angry, disappointed or frustrated with your husband or wife. Instead of screaming from the rooftops, “Fix my marriage,” the first thing to remember is that you are not alone in your struggles.

What About Unforgiveness
The Bible makes it clear that we all need to practice forgiveness, and that includes in our marriages. I am sure that there have been many times that your spouse has hurt you in some way and you have struggled to forgive them. Instead of harboring anger and resentment against your partner, start forgiving your partner. Have mercy for your partner, just as Jesus had for you. When forgiveness happens, healing can begin. Speak openly, but with kindness, to your partner about actions or words that may have hurt you, and truly forgive them in your heart. Remember, forgetting those things behind and reaching for those things ahead. After all, if you keep looking back, you’ll never see the present.
By allowing oneself to remain humble, it can reduce some the the common problems in marriage that has become a part of the normal way of doing and thinking.
