7 things you should never say to your spouse

No matter how heated things get, there are certain things you should never say to your spouse.


Sometimes in marriage we can hurt each other with the words we say. Many times the words were not even said to hurt the other person, and as much as we regret them, we sadly cannot take them back.

However, there are certain things you should never say to your spouse. Take a look at some of them below.

"I hate you"
No matter how angry you are, you should never tell your spouse that you hate them. This might cause them to doubt if you ever truly loved them. Rather stick to: “I hate it when you do this or that”.

"I wish I never married you"
It hurts to hear your spouse tell you that they wish they never married you, regardless of whether they mean what they are saying or not. You should never make your spouse feel you regret the marriage.

"You are useless"
It doesn’t matter if your spouse is helpful or not, telling them they are useless is a no-no. They may not be good in certain areas, but they are definitely not useless and you should never make them feel that way.

"Why can’t you be more like..."
Everyone wants to be loved and appreciated for who they are. Wishing your spouse to be like someone else or telling them you wish they were like somebody else will hurt their feelings. After all, no one is perfect - neither your spouse or the person you are comparing them to.

"My ex used to be better at this than you"
There is a reason why things didn’t work out between you and your ex. Comparing your spouse to your ex will make them feel like you wish you remained with your ex. This will only hurt your relationship and can even result in trust issues. No matter how angry you are, never compare your spouse to your ex.

"You are just like your mother/father"
Don’t ever make your partner feel like they are like their ‘worst’ parent. This will make them feel like you are attacking them and they will become defensive.

"You never do anything right"
Nothing makes a person more discouraged than being unappreciated. Truth is, your partner is great at doing some things, that is why you are with them. So don’t make it a habit of focusing on their flaws. You appreciating them will encourage them to do more things right.
