Are you a competitive person? Do you like to compete with your spouse? Here are some signs of competition in your marriage:
- You will do whatever it takes to win an argument.
- You always have to be right.
- You take winning a little too seriously, even in fun activities like board games.
- Everything becomes a contest.
- You gloat when you win.
- You are a sore loser.
Competition in marriage is deadly. In our coaching ministry, we encourage couples with weak conflict resolution skills to work together to brainstorm win-win solutions to their disagreements. When both spouses in a marriage feel that their needs and desires are being met, they work together to identify and implement a solution.
