I just say “ yup your right”....sometimes toss in a “your always right”. She just gets more pissed, goes to bed and won’t talk to me for 2-4 days.

I'm thinking some guys here have a slightly different definition of winning an argument with the wife than I do. After 45 years of a sometimes very rocky marriage, I figure any fight I walk away from physically unscathed is a win for me. Since she knows where the guns are and how to load and handle them, I try to realize where the line in the sand is.... sometimes....

And that old saying "happy wife, happy life"? Bunch of BS- placating a woman to keep the peace but making yourself miserable all the time isn't what I call a happy life. Kissing a woman's ass in order to, well, kiss her other close by parts just doesn't seem to be working for most guys I know, especially me....

In 44 years we have never had a fight.
She just says calmly, "I am not going to argue with you."
Then we pretend she was right.



But our daughter.... I was paying her to do chores and we would argue over money and details. She is a better at verbal battle than any attorney I have argued with.

Five weeks away from 38 years. If we have had a fight, I do not remember it.

But then I do not drink, nor fug around, and neither does she. So what is there to fight about?


My ideal as a conservative:

That each person may reap as he/she has sown.

If you can not bring reality into your relationship, why should she stay?

Kind of hard for me to win an argument with my wife as I am not much of a cook.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

The female mind does not allow it. Retribution simmers beneath a sweet smile.

Tried a different approach last night. Lead with apologizing for where I was at fault in the issue, then shut up. She proceeded to also apologize( that has been a tough nut to crack over the 16 years)and Darned if it didn’t turn out better than normal( me being pissed off for the next week).

I might have actually learned something

Yes, but the aftermath is far worse than losing the argument.

my wife is my partner, not my adversary I had three previous wives. Bi Polar, contentious, difficult women. The 29 years with this one has been conflict free. I know every hot button she has, and I just don't push 'em.

We get along very well. There have been some fights in nearly 24 years, and I would say the worst ones we had were over wedding plans, lol. I suppose if score were being kept, we would be at about 50-50, but there really isn't all that much I gaf about. Life is what you make of it, and that wasn't a very hard lesson to learn.

I am blessed in that my wife and I do not fight... we actually very rarely disagree and even when we do, it is no big deal and certainly nothing to fight over. I am one blessed man
