This is so, so important in a marriage!
Not many things will destroy a relationship faster than grudges.
And don’t just “forgive”. You need to forgive with your heart. It’s easy to keep a list in your memory of the ways your spouse has wronged you, ready to bring up at an opportune moment of anger.
What does that accomplish? Probably the exact opposite of what you really, truly want in your marriage. Do you really want to keep a list of everything the other has done wrong?
Or would you rather face challenges together in love? To work through the issue at hand without frustrating each other with sins of the past?
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
~1 Corinthians 13:4-7
