Have you ever agreed with your partner just to avoid an arguement?

If so why? I'm not a naturally submissive person, and I will stand my ground when I know, factually that I am right about something, but in my last relationship and with people at work etc, I have found that I have just relented, or agreed with them just to avoid disagreement or confrontation. I don't know if it is from personal experience, learning from the past or not having the desire to have a full-on debate, but lately I have been avoiding confrontation a lot more than I used to. Is anyone else like this? Do you avoid situations or people to avoid disagreement? Do you give in, instead of standing your ground or do you fight your corner??

Well i do..my partner is more stressed at work and so most times i accept and never argue, as am concerned about his health..so health is more important than to win any argument!

No, if I think I'm right, I stand on my opinion. I just let the the situation calm down and when we're both cool, I explain my side. If I'll meet his hot temper, rest assured that we won't come into agreement, so I just leave the house or let him cool first before we talk again.

i tried to explain but most of the time i didnt win so i just keep quite and pretend that i didnt hear anything like pretending that im sleeping. somehow some guys feel that they are right and everytime i explain they will shout so better yet to stop and wait til he feel better.

Not a chance. I am not going to do that just to avoid an argument, because I've known people who have taken advantage of this in the past, wanting to get me to agree with them, so they would not argue. Do this enough times, and the person you're agreeing with will eventually use it as a control tactic. That's what I've learned over the years. When I am right, I'm right.
