Common Marriage Myths Discussed


In the video below, Erica Hill talks to Woman’s Day editor Jamie Zanziger who says some of the traditional rules about what makes a healthy marriage are myths.

She seeks to dispel “Never go to bed angry” as a myth. However, I prefer to accept the wisdom of the Bible:

Ephesians 4:26
“In your anger do not sin” : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry…”

If we are committed to resolving issues each day and work at that discipline, the opportunities for there to be an accumulation of anger and frustration.

I would also not encourage lying to your partner. Not sharing every detail in life is not the same as lying.

Sleeping in separate beds because of anger can be seen as getting practice for “trial separation” which is often a precursor to divorce.

These “guidelines” as I would prefer to call them are worthy of note and can set the tone for a happy and lasting marriage.
