How can I stop myself from getting angry at my spouse?

It's important to have an iron-clad agreement that no matter what happens, I will not get angry with you. That is what inspires trust and openness. It allows each of you to open up. I want you to sit across from each other and say these words: "No matter what, I will not get angry with you. I am going to try to be as nice as I possibly can be because I hold our relationship as important and I love you." Say these words. I'm going to repeat them for you because its really, really important when you sit down, and you are about to have a discussion, and you are one who tends to get angry. You have to set the affirmation first and say these words out loud to each other: "I will not get angry with you." Make that promise. If you feel anger rolling up through your body during the marriage communication, remember your promise: "I will not get angry with you. I promised that I would be nice. I'm going to be nice."
