When problems arise

A slice of advice:
Don’t forget your friend or your parent’s friend.  Don’t always go to your family for help when trouble comes.  A neighbor close by is better than family far away.  Proverbs 27:10
When it comes to problems that arise in a marriage it is never wise to go to your family (that includes your family or in-laws) for help. When trouble arises in your marriage, it is better to find a close friend, a good neighbor or an elder (preferably a woman of integrity who has been married and who is seasoned with the wisdom of God) for help. 
The wisdom here is family will judge and hold the offense, long after the problem between you and your spouse has been resolved.  This is one way to honor marriage.
