Is it wrong to ask one’s spouse to speak in a nicer tone? Or should we just ignore these moments in marriage? Sometimes, my husband can be sarcastic, even when I am asking a question sincerely. It has been hurting my feelings lately, and I told him this morning that he wouldn’t reply to me this way, if we were dating and was trying to impress me. So, why act this way now? I’m not overly sensitive, and sometimes, I just accept that he ‘can be that way,’ but my question is…is it wrong to ask one’s spouse to change a behavior that we find offensive? We since talked about it, and I told him that "we should love one another the way Christ so loved His Church.’’ He agreed.
But, it took a heated argument to get to that point…so, is it wrong to ask one’s spouse to be kinder in his/her tone?
Or does God expect us to ignore all behaviors for the sake of being a good wife/husband?
Just wondering…thanks for listening.
