Do you find that you or your spouse get frustrated by the nagging that happens in your marriage?
In today’s video, we talk about what nagging is, how to handle communication, and how to honor one another so that nagging doesn’t take over.
Both spouses have a part to play so that nagging can be extinguished.
[1:05] Nagging is like a dripping faucet
[1:20] Nagging usually starts out with a reasonable request, but then becomes a problem when the request is repeated over and over again over a short period of time.
[2:50] We need to be clear in the communication of our request
[3:15] Anxiety can’t be fueling the communication
[5:30] Use the go to phrase “I feel _____ when you ____”.
[6:30] It comes down to respectful communication
[7:20] On the other hand, when we follow through on a request within a reasonable time frame, that is honoring your spouse.
[7:35] As the requesting spouse, we need to be aware of where our spouse is and ask for what we need at a good time.
[8:05] What it comes down to is mutual respect and serving one another.
