Being right is something a lot of people like to be. My family instilled that in me at an early age. Arguing your point was a sign of intelligence and strength. What I wasn’t taught very well was how to be judicious about when to argue. I just figured it was what I was suppose to do. And there are some who I am sure still think I am like that. But the truth is I learned as I got older, that arguing to prove your point has it’s place, but that place is in marriage much less often than I initially thought.
What I realized is that sometime you need to let the universe show you and your spouse what or who is right, over time. Maybe it will be an article you read that makes you realize your wife was right. Maybe a friend’s problem will help you realize your husband was right. It is usually more convincing when comes from those outside avenues anyway.
So, give up trying to win arguments against each other. Instead try to solve problems together. You will be happier and right and wrong will sort itself out along the way.
Oh, and when you are eventually proven to be right what should you do? SHUT UP.
