  • Nope.. When we argue (which is rarely) there is never a "winner" or "Loser".. We have learned the art of compromise and understanding over the span of our 25 years together. We understand now that winning the argument isn't a resolution, it's one just playing one up. We opt for working out resolutions together instead of trying for an individual "win".

  • No, not at all. I argue in a pretty humble manner. I get my point across make sure it's understood & leave it be. Although, if it turns out i "won" the argument, i do tend to rub it in his face...LOL!

  • No. One can't always be right. I have had to learn this the hard way. The more you can see the other ones point of view the more you realize where you are wrong or you are right. Hope this helps.

  • No if I'm wrong I'm wrong and if I'm right I'm right!

  • No. But I usually think I'm right :)

  • We don't argue either. It's a good thing :-)

  • Its not about who is right, its about what is right. I always remember that!

    Answer by kewi86 at 2:36 PM on Jan. 21, 2011

  • No. But I like to hear that he acknowledges and understand what upset me if that's what we're arguing about.

  • Most of the time, but he knows he's won when I say "i'm not talking about this anymore" But when I think I'm right I'm 100% right, When I know I'm wrong he still doesn't get the credit.
