Avoid Verbal Sparring, Especially in Public

"A meal of bread and water in contented peace is better than a banquet spiced with quarrels." Proverbs 17:1 MSG
 Even if you and your spouse fuss in apparent lighthearted fun, save the feuding for behind closed doors.  When you constantly pick at one another in public, those observing you may begin to wonder how you treat each other when no one else is around.

Another faux pas is contradicting your spouse in public. When you do this in front of others, your audience begins to doubt your spouse's credibility. And your contradictory comments might be viewed as disloyal. As your spouse recounts a shared experience to others, bite your tongue if you are tempted to share that you remember it differently. Wait until the two of you are alone. And even then, instead of sparring, let kindness rule your discussion.

"Save disagreements and contradictions until you get home."
