If you want a happy marriage, this stuff has to stop!
1. The Silent Treatment
Used as a form of ‘punishment’ when you are upset or don’t get your way.
TRY THIS: Learn how to process your anger and express it constructively.
2. Mind Reading
Used as a way to deflect talking about issues or expressing your needs and wants openly.
TRY THIS: Speak up and stop assuming you know how your spouse feels.
3. Cursing & Tantrums
Used as a method to convey frustration and demand ultimatums. Could be abusive too.
TRY THIS: Learn to self-soothe and get self-care. Heal any past trauma or childhood issues too.
4. The Blame Game
Used to avoid taking personal responsibility for one’s own faults or shortcomings.
TRY THIS: Admit that you made a mistake and seek to understand how it hurt your spouse.
5. Zoning Out
Used as a way to ignore hearing your spouse’s complaints and feeling bad about yourself.
TRY THIS: Show you care. Actively listen to your spouse and respect their unmet needs.
