Greatest Cause of Marital Conflicts
The greatest cause of marital
conflict is defrauding. Defrauding
is literally the stirring up of sensual appetites that cannot be righteously
fulfilled. When a couple defrauds
one another before marriage, it is a sign of a lack of self-control from the man
and attempts for acceptance from the woman.
In marriage, this will result in a lack of trust from the woman toward
her husband, because she will wonder how much self-control he has around other
this distrust deepens, he will become insensitive to her needs, and she will
question his love for her. When the man begins to make demands on his wife, this will
only confirm her doubts, which will result in a temporal focus in the wife as
the husband attempts to prove his love for her through gifts.
Finally, this will bring financial difficulty to the couple, and the
husband will be forced to focus on work to provide necessary funds while the
wife is left to get involved in things that will fulfill her emotional needs.
Ultimately, the original act of defrauding will consequently devastate an
entire marital relationship.
