  • Depends on the man...some yes with counseling and realization of their own issues, communication, etc.

  • I really don't think so. Not by himself. Something drastic would have to happen. Counseling may help.

  • only if he wants to.

  • Thats up to the man. If they want to change and take steps to do so then sure it is possible. Do I think they will change on their own over time? No.

  • A problem with lying...He probably lied all his life..People like that tend to believe their own stories.
    Can he change..I feel it he can admit that he has a problem and wants to better himself.
    The fighting part I believe can change..I grew up in a family that all we did was argue. My fiance now would never tolerate it and because of him I now know how to communicate. So in a sense if you do not tolerate the fighting in turn he has noone to fight with.

  • He can, but it won't be easy and it won't be quick and it will only happen if he recognizes the problem and wants to change it himself and I think therapy is required if he's serious about changing. YOU can not change him.

  • They can change if they WANT to and CHOOSE to. The problem is...Some men don't want to...That's what keeps people from changing...

  • I am sure if the guy wants to change then he can. I believe that any behavior/habit can be changed if the person wants to change but they have to want to do it and work hard at it. No one can change them. I learned that recently.

  • not without help from a person trained in these matter. His lying is probably from some sort of personality disorder and is deep rooted. The arguing is something a lot of men enjoy doing so not sure he'd even want to change. Men love competition even if only with words. It takes two to keep an argument going. So just don't say anything or if possible just agree with him (even if it's said with sarcasm!). I end it with "whatever you say, Dear". That works for me!
