    This is great reading. I’d like to read more on “aggressive” man. My fiancé and I are both from NY and although he became a Christian about a year ago (Easter 2014), he still exhibits anger issues (road rage; flying off the handle when things don’t go as expected; etc.). I remind him to calm down and quote James 1:19 to him but he still forgets. I understand it is a process and it may take some time to eradicate years of learned behavior.
    Any pointers on how to deal with or “what to do when you’re married to an AGGRESSIVE man” article please? Thanks.
    God bless!

      Hi Ritz, thanks for taking the time to comment. Both ends of the spectrum — passivity and aggressiveness — can be challenging. It sounds, though, that you are a very patient and caring fiancé who wants to bring out the best in the person you love. Having said that, and I hope you don’t mind this bit of advice, but it’s wise that you’re waiting to get married until your fiancé has shown that he has his anger issues under control.

      So, keep doing what you’re doing — praying for him and loving him and guiding him through the scriptures — but move cautiously toward marriage. A man prone to anger makes for a challenging life partner and if you have children, it will only get more challenging.

      We care! Nancy and the iMOM team.

    Awesome insight and suggestions! Unfortunately it took me almost 15 years to figure this stuff out! I have a VERY strong personality and have an issue with reacting too fast. I would tend to give punishments that were too harsh and struggled with following through with them. I never thought my husband reacted fast enough. Sometimes it would take two days for him to respond to something going on in our home. I learned that he was thinking things through, not blowing them off. By me assuming he was going to do nothing, I was undermining his authority and relationship with our kids. I still jump to action sometimes and blow it big time, but when I don’t, our whole family is much better for it. My realization and letting him be who God made him to be has strengthened our relationship as well! WIN, WIN!
