Never say negative things about your spouse to friends or relatives. If you have a problem work it out between the two of you, not in public. When others complain about their spouse, don’t join in.
Rabbi Andrea Frank comments…
Deborah offers good solid relationship advice for a successful marriage. As a society, we tend to focus on the negative rather the good in our spouses.
If you feel the need to speak about your spouse, why not focus on what you love about him or her. Why did you marry them? What about your wife or husband makes you smile? Then, those negative thoughts could actually be less trivial when you really think about it.
When you find yourself in conversations of only complaints, change the tone, and talk about how wonderful your spouse is and watch the reactions.
