Life Marriage

Why Is My Spouse Angry?

Encouraged? Share this post...

You know the scenario: the slightest word, the wrong inflection in your voice, or a simple mistake and your partner goes off with over-the-top anger. You are left wondering, “Is this all my fault?”  The answer:  “Probably not.”

Rather, your spouse is dealing with one or more of the basic emotional/spiritual causes of hurtful anger:

1. bitterness
2. moral impurity
3. unrealistic expectations
4. idols of materialism
5. low self-esteem
6. pride

If this describes you or your spouse, you need to repent of these issues and turn away from the causes of anger.

Proverbs 19:22a  “What is desirable in a person is kindness…”

 

 

 

 

 


Editor’s Note: Over the next few weeks Bob & Cheryl will be occasionally delving into the serious issue of anger in marriage. Some of the posts will be lengthy. MMCW prays the posts will be both insightful and lead to healing in hurting homes.
