Here are 10 that have no place in a godly relationship:
1. A Sharp Tongue
It can be easy to cut with words when things don’t go our way but, in a godly marriage, neither spouse yields to this ungodly impulse. (James 3:8)
2. A Good Memory (When It Comes to Offenses)
A good memory can be very bad. After we repent of our sins before God, He doesn’t then commit them to memory so they can be thrown in our faces the next time we need to repent. The Bible says that God forgets our sins. When we repent and ask forgiveness of each other, they should never be referenced again. Remembering and repeating past wrongs will prevent the true fellowship that always follows true forgiveness. We are called to forgive as God has forgiven. (Col. 3:13)
3. A Neglect of the Bibilical Order in Marriage

6. An Unwillingness to Sustain Difficulty
Godly couples have settled in for the long haul. Remember the old vow, “In sickness and in health?” Godly love bears all things (1 Cor. 13:7).
Pride says, “Notice me, talk about me, and focus on me.” The first thing you’ll hear or notice from a godly spouse is, “It’s not about me” (1 Cor. 13:4).
