  • Stick to the FACTS of why you're angry. Don't use the words ALWAYS or NEVER. As in "You ALWAYS do/say/act..." or "You NEVER do/say/act...."

    If you cannot argue amicably, and feel the need to curse uncontrollably or want to hit or throw things, then it's best to give yourself a "time out" and when you can construct a clear argument THEN confront your hubby.

    I always felt that in the heat of the moment people often say or do things they REALLY think and feel, as your "censor button" is temporarily disabled. It is times like that, that make you wonder if that is what your SO really thinks of you. Over time it can create resentment and doubt. My husband and I have a rule that it's best to just walk away, cool down, and when calm and rational, to then try and discuss the problem. Sometimes it can take repeating this rule several times until we get through the issue, but I feel we end up closer as a result.

  • Men really are like'll have fights in any relationship. Sometimes I choose to argue with him and sometimes I walk away and mutter about him under my breath.

  • I have to just bite my tongue. VERY VERY hard for me and sometimes it doesn't work but it's either that or ignore him which pisses him off even more lol.

  • I don't know of any one who doesn't have arguments, I have always thought that they were an important part of a relationship, as long as things don't escalate into anything violent then there's nothing wrong with them. Now if you two are arguing every day about little things then there is something wrong and perhaps you should reevaluate your relationship.

  • i just tell him how i feel rather then say you are wrong and things like that. thats how we do it and it works for us accept when i get really hurt or i know my hormones get the most me and i can't handle talking in the usual manner. sometimes i really want to hurt him. just cause i can't handle the pain.
