I’m speaking tonight at Johnson University Florida to one of the Devotional-Groups (d-groups) and I am so excited!!!
So excited that I didn’t finish my post for today.
*hangs head in shame*
So, I ask for forgiveness, but want to pose a question:
If you’re married: What was your first fight as a married couple about?
If you’re dating: What was your first “real big” fight about?
My first real big fight with my boyfriend was about how to clean dishes and counter tops that had had raw meat on them. I grew up in a family of nurses- we always bleach after cooking with raw meat because of the microbes that can make you sick. My boyfriend grew up overseas in a tropical country where his kitchen was half indoors and half outdoors. It’s funny now thinking back about our fight over cleaning dishes, but at the time it wasn’t so funny as I ended up crying. However, having this be our first major fight made us realize that we’d need to work through more cultural differences than we previously thought we would face. Even being close friends for several years didn’t quite prepare us fully for the issues that pop up while dating. 🙂
How funny! And it’s true, nothing can prepare you for dating fights….and later, married fights! Thanks for sharing!
