I hate to argue and I try to diffuse them the best that I can but I need a little help in that area. What would you suggest? (AND NO, MEN ARE NOT ALWAYS RIGHT LOL!)

Sometimes it's best to step away from the argument for a moment and take a breather, reassess the situation, and come back to the issue with a more level head. Being willing to compromise and negotiate helps a lot.

I won't speak for few seconds just enough to create silence then i would start with another topic. Usually, when both are high on emotions both of them couldn't think well so arguments will just get worse. I'm usually calm. I only speak but people know that i'm mad. I really don't put anger into my chest so in just a matter of few minutes, everything is forgotten.
