I have my hubby, Mark, with me this week for a conversation on conflict in marriage. Now, conflict is inevitable when you live in close quarters with someone, but even more so when you merge lives together! How you approach life can rub up against the way your spouse approaches life, and this can lead to conflict and even accusations that harm our connection and intimacy.

Accusations and conflict can happen in all kinds of relationships, but we want to focus in on how these can impact the marriage relationship.

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • The spiritual warfare wrapped up into disconnection
  • Accusations to avoid when conflict rises
  • How to reduce conflict in your marriage
  • And much more!

We hope this episode helps draw you closer to your spouse and strengthens your marriage!

My Key Takeaways:

1) Conflict is a tool of the enemy. There is a battle going on for your heart, relationships, family, and your marriage. The enemy is looking for ways to bring about conflict, make you believe lies, and cause divides in your marriage.

2) Shame and judgment can cause divides in your relationship. Shame is when the enemy’s accusations are inward toward yourself and judgment is when those accusations turn outward toward others. When we allow judgments toward others to boil up in our lives, it can lead to negative thoughts where all we can focus on is our spouse’s faults. We can almost become blind to anything good they may be doing.

3) Don’t take the bait. The enemy is trying to get you to react unlovingly and without grace toward your spouse. When we are caught off-guard, we are more likely to be disconnected from our spouse which can lead to conflict. It’s important that we keep our guard up to protect our marriage from conflict and accusations.
