what will you do when your partner does not agree with you?

You are in a relationship with someone because you are most likely compatible with each other, you have lots of common interests, and you agree in most of situations. What if there is a certain issue and both of you have different point of view and there is no way for your opinions to coincide. Both of your decisions are two sides of a coin, what you usually do?

Hi yonkie..this is an easy one for me. Neither my hubby or I beleive in fighting or arguing over a subject that is a matter of opinion. In a case where we have different opinions, we just agree, to disagree. It saves a lot of agony in the end. There is no way that 2 people are always going to agree on everything and arguing is not the solution.

Good for you that those matters are easy for you and your hubby to deal with. If all couples are like your style, I am sure there will be less divorce and separation filed in court.

Well, even in your family there are always disagreements between siblings and parents. much as more with your friends. if that's the case then it's impossible not to have disagreements with your partner, even for the most compatible couples have some differences.

you are correct. I agree with you. We are not born the same so we have different opinions and views at times.

Then we will argue and discuss it. After some time, one of us will give in at last:) I love China

Usually after the quarrel, sweetness will follow, right?

Me and my husband doesn't agree all the time, what we always do is that we hear each others side, now if I think I am right I always insist my point if he sublimate then we go with mine, but if he argue with me then that's the time I sublimate with him.

It is really good to hear each other out than insisting on your own point of view.

Prayer will always help disagreements to be resolve. It is the power of God that is inevitable.

Definitely, i will step down for the sake of the relationship if he have the good point why he do not agree with me. But i will insist mine if he do not tell me clearly why he don't agree with me. Lately i have disagreement with him, and because i insist my point and i said i can not understand you and we will keep in disagreement if you insist that issue to me, it result of having no communication for days, but when we got communication again, i said, okay because we will never end up to agree in this issue, do you agree with me that we disagree each other? To resolve this, we will forget this and don't pop up the issue again?, He said yes, and thank you for that, after that, we are now okay, and when disagreement on something arises both of us will say, we have to agree that we disagree on this and forget. I do not know if this will work to others.

Good reasons should prevail always.

I will seed the commons from the disagreements! For example, you like this guy, but your mom don't. Why? She must have her reason, she says that she want you to have the best! You can ask her, what is the best for me in your opinion? She will tell you all the difination that she has for you, you can choose and pick those in common and told her that you think that guy is the best to you. You need to agree something with her first, then start from there to show your opinion, that might work!

Your response is one of the best things to do in case of disagreements.

Oh come on, disagreement would always be there. Suppose you are in a relationship since 18 years of age, then your partner was living in a totally different environment for 18 years. In the same way, you too are from a totally different world. So how come you expect both of you to agree with each other so suddenly. Love is accepting others faults and weaknesses. Its all about understanding. So for your question, if she doesn't agree with me, I try to listen to her point. If it has good reasons supporting it then why not change myself, but if my reasons are better, then I'll make her understand. If she still does not understand, can't I even do such a small thing as an agreement on a small issue for the only girl I love ???

I did not say that there will be no disagreements in a relationship.
