How is your relationship with your spouse at this moment?
Is it excellent? Cordial? Manageable? Or hostile?
There are couples whose relationship at this moment is very good. They are on very good terms. Current is flowing between them.
There are others whose relationship is at its lowest ebb. They don’t want to catch each other with the eyes. They are not on good terms.
Do you know what can happen when a man and his wife are not on good terms?
A lot can go wrong.
Much has gone wrong for many couples for this reason.
Many families have experienced untold suffering just because husband and wife were not getting on well.
Many people leave their homes in the morning feeling sad; carrying long faces, unable to smile.
They stay in that mood all day at work, and go back home in the evening with the same low spirits.
Go to investigate and you will discover that they, husband and husband, were at loggerheads before one or both of them left the house.
It may simply be that food money was not given. It may be there was a careless exchange of bitter words. It could be some external influence.
It is very easy for someone to run into an accident just because the person left the house quarreling with the spouse.
If you are angry when you drive it can be risky. You can easily hit somebody or another vehicle hits you; or you run into a ditch.
When couples quarrel, they must quickly get over it. No one says couples can go completely without quarrelling, but don’t quarrel and let it go for too long.
There are many men who have left home and gone drinking carelessly because they quarrelled with their wife and did not reconcile.
Look at the dangers to which he is exposed: he is exposed to being poisoned; he can drink and get drunk and run into one kind of trouble or another; he can be robbed, beaten and even killed, etc,.
These are things that have happened. It is very dangerous when a man and his wife are always quarreling. Their lives are not safe.
A lot of spouses fall prey to temptation to cheat on the other when they are always on bad terms.
When some people see you looking sad , they like to take advantage. Some will give you misleading advice which will worsen matters for you.
You may find your husband’s friend who is very friendly and sympathetic, but the next minute, he will be wanting to date you.
Unfortunate! Instead of helping you in trouble, he wants to sink you further into the sea.
Women are no better. A woman will know that you have problems with your spouse and pretend to be showing sympathy. The next minute, she will invite you home. Soon, she will want you to leave your wife and marry her.
A couple that is always at loggerheads, hardly progresses as they should. Frequent quarrels retard progress.
How can they progress when each person will not be ready to sit down and discuss with the other? Sitting and planning together requires that the couple understands each other; that they work in harmony; in synergy. And working in synergy as couple generates tremendous power.
You must avoid frequent quarrels with your spouse. If you quarrel often, one person or both of you could die easily as a result.
It is true that human beings are not God, and not even angels or saints. You must from time to time have some misunderstanding; but quickly resolve the differences. Do not let it go on for ever. Do not go to bed with an unresolved quarrel with your spouse.
Bear in mind that couples that are always at loggerheads are very likely to end up in tears
