This holiday season, make a point of speaking positively about your husband among friends and family.
Problems can be discussed privately with your husband, a friend who gives good counsel, or a minister/marriage counselor.
Positive talk about your husband puts a graciousness in your conversation, builds your husband’s sense of value, and nudges your personal culture toward being marriage-friendly.
Talking down about your man publicly is a downer at parties, damages your husband’s reputation, and puts a dink in your marriage relationship.
Praise in public, problems in private.
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29 ESV
