Resolving Conflict

It happens every day. But the only evenings I actually notice the sunset are the evenings when I'm fighting with someone I love. For as the shadows lengthen, a haunting Scripture I memorized long ago inevitably returns to me: "Don't let the sun go down while you're still angry."

Following that simple commandment can bring even the worst marital squabbles to a hasty end. Unless, of course, the squabbles don't begin till after dark. Find out how one couple resolved their nightly bedtime arguments and rediscovered the sunny side of marriage's first year.

But if you start the arguing a little before bedtime, you might find the key to a smoother evening is divvying up after-work household chores!

Or it might be laughing together after a stressful day. Take a look at the hilarious marriage of stand-up comedians Kerri Pomarolli and Ron McGhee, and you'll probably agree.
