Stress in Marriage: How Couples Can Handle It – Part 2

Stress in Marriage: How Couples Can Handle It
Reading Time: 2 minutes

I will be addressing the issue of how husbands and wives can handle stress in marriage thereby creating a more cordial and intimate atmosphere together.

I will be writing about this topic “Stress in marriage” for some days so let enjoy the ride together.

Yesterday I wrote on

1. Financial pressure

2. Handling in-laws

And today

3. Comparison trap

Bible tells us they that compare themselves with themselves are not wise.

In the NLT we have another translation:

Oh, don’t worry; we wouldn’t dare say that we are as wonderful as these other men who tell you how important they are! But they are only comparing themselves with reaching other, using themselves as the standard of measurement. How ignorant! 2 Corinthians 10:12 NLT

It is clear from the scripture that end result of comparison is usually not palatable. Why is this? Because it is a futile effort. It is wasting precious resources of time and energy. There are no basis for comparison.

Some people compare their spouses, children, jobs, possessions, cars etc  When you form the bad habit of comparing you compare everything and anything.

Everybody is uniquely different, on a uniquely different journey, on a different time table in life and destiny.

We are all from different background with different circumstances.

When you compare, you introduce stress into your marriage. It produces a strain in your relationship. So stop comparing.

4. Doing beyond our selves.

This is like stretching ourselves beyond what we could do naturally. We need to be true to ourselves. Being truthful and sincere to ourselves is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.

Where you know and accept your limits and you know your boundaries. You know the stage you are in, enjoy the stage not allowing anybody to push you beyond where you are.

Knowing what stage you are makes you aspire higher knowing that men are in sizes.

As couples, don’t forget we will all go through 3 stages on our married life. Seasons of not enough, Just enough and more than enough.

When you are in your season of ‘just enough’, don’t let people push you to doing like you are in more than enough season

I will stop here for today

May God grant us more understanding.

God bless our marriage.
