A practical handbook on how to fight better---together---for your marriage.

In every marriage, there is conflict. And with every conflict, there is a choice for resolution. Will you ignore the issue until it seemingly goes away? Or will you work together to find peace?

In Don't Go to Bed Angry, Deb and Ron DeArmond give you permission to fight. Conflict isn't the problem, after all; the real issue is how we deal with the conflict. Deb and Ron demonstrate how communication through conflict can safeguard---and even strengthen---your relationship. Immensely practical features including worksheets and discussion questions make this a definitive go-to resource to help you start fighting---together---for your marriage.

"Don't go to bed angry." That is one of the first "rules" I told my husband when we got married. Clearly, it has merit! LOL. So, the moment I saw the title of this book, I have to read it.  For me, it was just one simple rule - five words, but after years, we've realized at times, it's how we go about achieving that, that has quite the learning curve.  In Don't Go to Bed Angry by Deb and Ron DeArmond, we are presented with tools to handle conflict as a couple, and not just any couple - a couple committed in a covenant with each other and God. I find the basic understanding and premise of this book in correlation to my beliefs in always working for the marriage, with God as our center, our mentor.  It does take effort, personal effort and communication.

"When we stand, fighting together as one flesh, against the enemy, we break through these barriers and reflect the life Christ died to secure for us.  Our marriages glorify Him as we reflect the character of the King in this life. " (102)

Don't Go to Bed Angry includes information on the subject, discussion, practical tools and insights from personal testimonies of others. The "Put on the Glove" section at the back of each category is very similar to the questions in pre-marriage counseling , allowing both you and your other half to have discussion questions and prayer time together.  In all, it is what it said it is, "A practical handbook on how to fight better - together - for your marriage."  (back cover)

  1. Annie, this book sounds like a great resource.

  2. Hi Caryl. I think so too. Something to read and review periodically with one's spouse. One doesn't need to follow everything to the T, but good to use as a reference point.
