06 Jul 06/24/12 The Importance of Communication in Marriage (Archive)
BOND Sunday Service, June 24, 2012: Jesse Lee Peterson talks at-length with a married couple John and his wife, whose relationship has grown bitter with flashes of anger at times.
Every Sunday, Jesse invites people to bring their questions or comments for fellowship. One lady talks about disturbing dreams she’s been having; don’t try to make up an interpretation. Another lady finally realized she shouldn’t try to give advice to her adult daughter who resents her.
Then we get to the stressed couple with a troubled marriage, when the husband John fears he’ll never get over his anger.
A 14-year-old young man talks a little about his relationship with his parents. At this, a young woman describes what her 14-year-old brother is going through with his Armenian family.
Getting back to the couple, another woman relates with John’s wife, as she used to feel bitter toward her husband whom she thought was angry. Once she decided to focus on herself and not be angry, however he acted, she became happier, and he too seemed to get better. He forced her to talk rather than retreat and sulk. Deal with issues, rather than hide from them, so that you get better in life. And don’t blame others for how you feel.
