From This Day Forward

In order to fight fair you must handle your anger righteously. Reacting with only your emotions will escalate your fight. Instead, be slow to anger as the Bible says in James 1:19 because it will lead to resolution and healing.

Talk: Discuss with your spouse the best way and time to approach each other when addressing an issue in your marriage.

Pray: Ask God to reveal to each of you times where you haven't fought fair and to help you restore any damage to your marriage caused by these fights.

Do: Create a simple list of ground rules based upon what you've learned from God's Word to use when you fight. Keep this list in a place where both of you can see it to remind you how to fight fair.
