Every relationship has arguments…but there comes a time when you have to say, “this is getting old.” You wanna know something “old married couples,” hardly argue, so don’t ever use that metaphor again. And if they do they’ve learned to agree or disagree without disrupting the NEIGHBORS!!!! And to be honest what would they argue over anyways, where’s the medicine, the bingo chips, the newspaper, my teeth!!! Arguments show a lack of constraint and compassion to a certain extent. Everyone wants to be right, no one wants to listen. Blah blah blah!
When faced with an issue stop and think, then ask, “how can we resolve it without screaming our heads off?” Domestic disputes happen all the time, we’ve had our share. Instead of letting it escalate go somewhere and COOL OFF. If you’re married…we recommend a hot shower and some make-up #sex.
A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,
2 Timothy 2:14
Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers.
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;
But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless.
