Difference of Opinion

November 9, 2010

in the generous life

When your husband says something that you disagree with, the immediate moment may not be the best time to contest what he says. Sometimes it’s kinder and more respectful to deal with it later privately and sometimes it’s really not all that important and can be passed over altogether.

Realize also that people are allowed to have different opinions and saying something you disagree with doesn’t automatically mean that your husband is wrong and needs correction.  It may just mean that he is a different person and has his own opinion.  It’s OK to share your thoughts (you’re allowed an opinion too), but it’s always good to treat his shared thoughts respectfully.

Most men are not scolded out of their opinion.  Martin Van Buren

Before my parents got married my grandma told them “If two people agree about everything, then one of them is not necessary.”
