Don't wash your dirty linen in public.

Don't wash your dirty linen in public. Haven't we learn this idiom before in school or something? Well, how do we apply this in our daily lives and most importantly of all in our relationship and marriage? Well, no matter how tempting it is to do so, how frustrated we are at our spouses, we should not air out our anger or their shortcomings in public. This is nothing but a sure way to sour a volatile relationship. It is like a point of no return when things get bad and when it is public knowledge so to speak.

Afford yourself and your spouse the dignity and even if your anger is justified, surely by talking about the matter to everyone would not have solved the problem. When you criticize your mate publicly, you not only lower the listener's estimation of your mate, you lower their opinion of you as well. So don't burn your bridges before you are at the other end. Discuss matters with an open heart with the view to resolve problems and not to win arguments.
