You may want to think twice about marrying someone who constantly yells, shouts, and screams at you and who thinks that kind of behavior is normal, and they don’t need to change.
Being in a relationship with that type of person isn’t going to be easy. It’s hard to solve problems when you’re constantly having nose-to-nose confrontations.
That’s doesn’t mean you’re supposed to be passive, always backing down or ignoring controversial issues to avoid conflict. But you can learn to deal with issues in a civil manner without shouting and creating excessive drama. Proverbs 31:25-26 talks about being clothed with strength and dignity, speaking words of wisdom, and giving instruction with kindness. First Corinthians 13:4-5 talks about love being patient, kind, and not easily angered. Those are the characteristics we need to have working in our lives, and that’s what our “normal” behavior is supposed to look like.
Nobody is perfect, but a prerequisite to having a successful relationship is a willingness to change. Just something to think about as you’re looking for that special person to spend the rest of your life with.
The Take Away:
If you’re in a serious dating relationship with someone who shouts, yells, and screams at you, you might want to think twice about whether you want to live with that the rest of your life. People can change, but they have to realize that change is necessary and then be willing to do whatever is necessary to make that change happen.
