Navigating Life's Big Moments: Why Couples Fight Before Big Moments

We Do Whatever It Takes

Oct 11 2023 • 25 mins

Have you ever wondered why fights and arguments often precede the most momentous events in our lives? Remember the time when we recently flew to Colorado for a Focus On The Family staff marriage retreat? The anticipation was high, and so were our anxieties. For us, it was an eye-opener to understand that almost all conflicts have their roots in unfulfilled or unvoiced expectations.

This episode aims to shed light on how to foster a resilient marriage. We talk about recognizing the triggers of conflict, acknowledging fear, and making trust-based decisions. We also share invaluable insights into the transformative power of love, drawing wisdom from 1 Corinthians 13. Remember, love is patient, kind, and keeps no score of wrongs. Strategy to avoid potential conflicts during grand moments? Have proactive, honest conversations. And always remember, forgiveness is a gift we can offer even before it's asked for. Join us for this heartfelt conversation, and let's learn to navigate life's big moments with grace, love, and understanding.
