with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
Back when we were newlyweds, a mentor couple that our church had paired us with gave us some advice that was the opposite of what we’d heard from many others. They told us that it was okay to go to bed angry with each other.
If it’s getting late, and the discussion is heated, the odds of getting it settled are kind of against you. You’re tired, emotional, and possibly not your most rational self. Agree to a cease-fire, go to sleep, and look at the issue with fresh (and rested) eyes in the morning. We’ve often found that whatever the issue was, it’s not as big as it seemed the night before and we put it behind us with a hug and mutual “I’m sorry” statements.
How about you? Do you ever go to bed angry?
