Pope Francis on Friday advised married couples not to go to bed angry “even if the plates fly” in a light-hearted address during a pilgrimage to the sites associated with St Francis of Assisi.

“Argue as much as you like,even if the plates fly that is fine,but never end the day without making peace,” the pope said in Assisi Cathedral.

“If married couples learn to say sorry,that is peace… It is a nice secret and that is life,rather than painful separations,” he said.

Married couples who separate “have not managed to forgive each other in time,” the pope said.
