5 Things Women Shouldn’t Say In Marriage. Ola would not speak to his wife for days. He buried himself in his work. Outwardly, the Johnson family was the quintessential couple everybody admired. Their marriage seems planned out of the very heavens. They were models to younger people as their PDA was simply top notch!

But, all that was pulchritude! Ola Johnson was not happy! Alone in the house, they despised each other! Ola would not speak to his wife for days. Kelly Johnson was just simply confused how his once romantic husband had hibernated and shut down his emotions towards her.

They acted good in public but were wrecks in the home. They maintained social media life while their reality is tearing apart!

Strife became the order of the day. Little actions would lead to massive provocations. They both knew they won’t last that way. Ola would not bulge. Their sex life was emotionless and the few times they made love, Kelly could almost be reading a novel while they were at it!

5 Things Women Shouldn’t Say In Marriage

1. I feel you are not being a man in this marriage.
That would certainly crush his ego and he would be helpless because we are dealing with personalities here

2. Why can’t you learn from that Mr so and so?
Never compare your husband with any other man. The results will be unpleasant.

3. With the way you are going, I am not sure you can provide for me and the family
Never say this to your fiance or husband. If you know you love him and you are led by God, what you need to do is to intercede for one another.

4. You are just slow and lazy. The only thing you know to do is sleep and watch football.
Your fiance or husband will not take likely to such words repeated in his ears. Those words won’t make him to change either.

5. I made a mistake when I married you. I never suffered like this in my parents’ house. When you know you could not take care of me, why did you marry me?
If you understand one flesh principle in marriage, you won’t even talk like this!
