How to Stop Resenting Your Spouse


Do you find yourself resenting your spouse? Is it affecting your marriage? Do you want to save your marriage and keep it healthy? Read on for a few simple steps to keep your marriage on the right track and out of the marriage counselors office.

  • Stop adding it up. Instead of saying to yourself, "who has worked harder or done more with the kids today?" ask "How am I doing? Am I ok?" If your answer is "fine," then it doesn't matter who has done more. Remember, marriage isn't always 50/50, sometimes it's 90/10.

  • Make time for yourself. We are great at calling out our spouse for taking too much "me time," but are we good at taking some for ourselves. If you don't feel rested and at least moderately fulfilled, you will feel resentful. Let go of guilt, and do some things to make your self happy. If you do enough for yourself, you will not feel resentment when you sacrifice or when others don't sacrifice as much as you do (or think you do.)

  • Resentment and guilt go hand in hand. We do and do because we feel guilty when we don't. But we resent when the ones we love don't take the guilt away from us and say we have done a great job, or repay our sacrifice with their own. Let go of the guilt and save your marriage.
