Don't Go to Bed Angry
A practical handbook on how to fight better—together—for your marriage.
In every marriage, there is conflict. And with every conflict, there is a choice for resolution. Will you ignore the issue until it seemingly goes away? Or will you work together to find peace?
In Don’t Go to Bed Angry, Deb and Ron DeArmond give you permission to fight. Conflict isn’t the problem, after all; the real issue is how we deal with the conflict. Deb and Ron demonstrate how communication through conflict can safeguard—and even strengthen—your relationship. Immensely practical features including worksheets and discussion questions make this a definitive go-to resource to help you start fighting—together—for your marriage.
My thoughts: My husband and I did several sessions of ore-marital counseling before we were married, so a lot of the ideas in this book aren't totally foreign to me. That said, it has been about 6 years since we went through a lot of that stuff, so it was nice to have a refresher course! I appreciate the message that this book has about fighting fair, communicating (I think this was my favorite part, since they have some great tools for communicating better!), and taking stock of how baggage has affected each spouse. I also love that Deb and Ron are open and honest about their experiences and how that has shaped their message.
So, whether you have been married for a while or are just tying the knot, I think this is an excellent book to read and apply! I think it would make a great gift for newlyweds.
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
