How to deal with a nagging wife - Part 2

Continued from Part 1

Now despite all the excerpts from the Bible which spells out the evils of a nagging wife, what will you do if you have a nagging wife?

As a God-fearing Christian, I would advise you to do the following:
  1. The first thing is to pray about this. What you will find in many cases is that the woman does not find anything wrong about nagging and does not why there should be any fuss about this. So the first step is to pray to God for her eyes to be open. You would realize that even when people get born-again, they do not deal with the habits they carry over from their unborn state. First they need to understand that they need to recognize these bad habits and pray about deliverance from them. The husband who recognizes these nagging traits should pray for his wife’s deliverance.
  2. The Second thing is to have discussion with your wife. Bring this up in a nice and relaxed atmosphere and let her know the harm this is bringing to your marriage. Give examples of her nagging and suggest better ways of communicating her frustrations or needs. 
  3. In discussing with your wife as in (2) above, 
  • Find out what makes your wife nag. Is it a trust issue with you? Are you the source of her frustration? 
  • Does she even realize she nags? 
  • Does she understand the harmful effects of nagging?
  • Does she know there is an alternative to nagging?
  • Share 1 Corinthians 13 with her.
    4.  After finding out the reason(s) for nagging, work together with her to come up with a plan to deal with the issues.
    5. Come up with rewards as the effects of the plans start kicking it.

Please note that you as the husband should be patient with your wife in resolving the “nagging” issue. Do not give up even though the change might tarry. The change will surely happen.
