Things a wife should never say to her husband… 

“Words are free. It is how you use them that may cost you.” – J. Martin

Yes, your words can cost you your marriage. 

The most important lesson I’ve learned so far in marriage (glad I learned it early into our marriage) is that, words can ruin or build a home. 

Funny thing is, you don’t even have to mean those words. You only have to spill them. 

I didn’t mean the words I said to my husband three weeks after our wedding, but they caused a serious argument that threatened our union. 

We were both wrong but I said too much. Or I typed too much. It was a text message in response to his. 

Downsides to being a fiction writer—the words kept flowing, even though I didn’t mean them. 

There’s no perfect marriage on the planet. 

Even the sweetest couple have their moments of conflicts

However, there are some things you shouldn’t say to your partner—if you still care about them or your marriage—things a wife should never say to her husband. 

This is because words are like eggs, once said, can never be retrieved. 

Again, you don’t have to mean them. 

No matter how much you try to convince your spouse that you didn’t mean the hurtful thing you spewed to them, the fact that you thought it up is enough to bother them. 

Just as there are some worst things a husband could ever say to his wife, there are some things a wife should never say to her husband. 

Below are 150+ things a wife should never say to her husband :
