  • Think, think, think before you finally decide to open your mouth. Make sure whatever you're about to bitch about is really worth it to you.

  • Don't argue...when you feel like you cannot agree then walk away and think about the situation on your own and try to work things out within yourself first and then later when the time is right talk. I have been with my husband for 7 yrs and we have yet to raise our voices at each other

  • My biggest piece of advice is not to sweat the small stuff. I know our men can be a little irritating at times, TRUST ME, lol.. but think about if what your getting irritated over is really worth the trouble. If it's something you truly have a problem with and needs to be worked on then talk about it rather than going nuts and making into a big issue.

  • It takes two to argue. Don't participate and there is no argument. SO won't fight for anything. He just walks away. In the beginning that drove me nuts but over time I realized it gives us both a chance to think things out and get on with life

  • Ignore the other person completely...just turn and walk away because once you start arguing, no one is listening to anyone anyway so whatever you or the other person says is going to be misunderstood and hurtful anyway.

  • never condescend the other and talk calmly...sometimes it looks better for you in the long run and everyone's points of view are heard and understood.
