Learn when to speak out and when to shut up in marriage!
One of the number one rule to biting your tongue in marriage is understanding your endgame? Do you want a marriage that lasts? Or do you simply want to get things off of your chest, no matter what the consequences are? Neither is wrong, neither is right. The litmus test for your marriage depends on what your thoughts are of what a great marriage is. It rely’s on what you think it takes to cultivate your marriage and likewise what you are willing to do to protect it.
Understanding the importance of your marriage over your own personal desires is the determining factor in your longevity. Real love is self-sacrificing not self seeking.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV
That might even mean creating an inner monologue-a silent diss-track that plays over, over and over in your mind that preoccupies you; keeping you from your own demise.
This diss-track very well may save your marriage and prevent you from blurting out unsolicited advice without checking the marital climate before speaking. However, if you find yourself so annoyed, so frustrated and utterly useless until you speak your mind…well this might be the perfect temperature to bite your tongue and I mean bite it hard!
