In any marriage, there will be disagreements, but do you know how to keep your conflict constructive rather than destructive?
The issue is not whether we’ll have conflict or not, but whether that conflict will be destructive or constructive. Constructive conflict leads to a new understanding of each other, the issue, and ourselves. You end up closer together at the end. Destructive conflict, on the other hand, results in continued upset and bitterness. It leads the parties to pull away emotionally.
So how do we prevent destructive marriage conflict? It’s vitally important that we understand this because our marriage displays Christ to a watching world and to our watching children.
