My girlfriend and I have been dating for 6 months and have been seriously considering marriage. I have a problem with anger”nothing physical”mainly venting frustration about things like driving in traffic or when a restaurant messes up my order. Im not vindictive or anything, I just get upset and grumble. I have never once in all the time weve dated ever been angry at her, but she had once been married to someone with violent anger issues and is afraid I could be like him. Just yesterday she told me how wonderful and loving I was to her, then last night after a long car ride with me in traffic, she led me to believe shes about to end our relationship due to my anger. She had been praying for God to give her a sign if were not supposed to be together. I think she may see my frustration driving in traffic as His sign”but I dont think it is. Im praying that God will help me be more patient and I’m willing to do whatever it takes to change. Please pray that God would encourage her to give me a chance. I love her SO much and know I would be a great, loving husband to her. I’m 53 and she is the love of my life. I’ll be devastated if I lost her.
