How to Stop Nagging in Your Marriage. Cynthia was perplexed by her husband’s abrupt change in behavior. He now stays out late with his friends rather than returning home.

Cynthia reflected that he wasn’t like this when they were first married.

She couldn’t handle it any longer. She cried and wouldn’t stop until Peter, her husband, explained why he was late.

Peter’s statement took her by surprise. Cynthia, you nag! he remarked.

Cynthia couldn’t understand the connection between nagging and coming home late. What is the connection? Let’s take a look at the scripture.

How to Stop Nagging in Your Marriage

King Solomon was correct when he stated

Pro 21:9 CEV
It’s better to stay outside on the roof of your house than to live inside with a nagging wife.

Solomon  then says in a few verses later in the chapter:

Pro 21:19 CEV
It’s better out in the desert than at home with a nagging, complaining wife.

Simply said, nagging will drive couples apart. As some may believe, nagging is not gender-specific. A wife can nag and a husband can nag too. Men who take a lot after their mum can often nag as well.

Nagging is just making a repeated demand or comment. 

If you find yourself in this predicament, there are a few options to get out of it.

How to Stop Nagging in Your Marriage

1. Recognize that nagging is a negative attitude.

2. Request that the Holy Spirit assist you in breaking the undesirable behavior.

3. Look into Scriptures in the Bible that deal with the circumstance and ponder on them.

4. Respect your spouse’s thoughts and don’t expect your spouse to do everything you suggest right away.

5. Do not keep repeating yourself. Your husband initially heard you. Rather than nagging, pray to God and ask him to assist you.

It is easier and more effective when you let God do the saying to your spouse than you continually nagging till you wear each other out.

God will grant you wisdom in Jesus’ name!
