talking bad about your husband leads to bad thoughts about your husband, which leads to bitterness and resentment and icky ugly feelings towards your husband. those feelings could lead to actions, and those actions could very well tear apart your marriage. bite your tongue if you ever find yourself in a man-bashing session with your girlfriends. find something positive to say about him; defend him, praise him, and love him even when he isn't in earshot...Great words of wisdom!!
