Attacks in on a person can come from everywhere: family, friends, co-workers, media and even church. But you don’t have to give into the peer pressure to pick on your spouse just because someone else’s marriage is not working well. You should have your spouse’s back at all times regardless of how you feel your spouse treats you. This is not about keeping score and if you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours. Rather it is your responsibility to honestly protect your spouse because most attacks happen when he or she is not there. This is not about having rose-colored glasses where your spouse can do nothing wrong, that is equally damaging as seeing everything wrong. Rather it is about having your spouse’s back in public and if necessary confronting him or her in private.
