What do you and your significant other fight/disagree MOST about?
Alternately, what topic is the easiest for you to agree upon?
Our views on discipline. For the children and for the dogs. She is more strict and inconsistent and I'm 99% fair. She does the motherly thing of yelling from another room at one child or the other without knowing what happened or who was at fault. I give the innocent until proven guilty method a go in most cases.
I imagine discipline can be a challenge especially when there is not agreement. My husband and I hope to have kids soon but in the meantime we are working to find ways of agreement before kiddos arrive. Dishes is our first topic to try to agree on!
We disagree the most about his family and how to handle them. His uncle sold David's truck illegally, his mother stalks her boyfriend and has been married three times, his father was abusive and David get's paranoid and stressed being around the guy. It's a difficult situation so we try to stay away from them.
The easiest to agree upon... probably what to eat. Whatever he wants is usually the meal. As long as it isn't too spicy.
Oh wow--that's some intense stuff to deal with there! Family dynamics can be difficult to handle together. Have you found ways to partner together in the midst of the challenges?
By staying out of it, or just ignoring his family. It's not difficult, they only pop up once a year. His dad once every few months. We just stick together, sometimes not talking about it helps. If we need to make a decision, we talk it out.
We rarely argue or fight but when we do it is usually because of my sarcasm. I end up saying something I shouldn't and he gets his feeling hurt and so it goes.
I think on most other things we sort of agree to disagree. We get along great and have opposing views on many things. I guess our biggest area of agreement is our feelings about our kids and grandkids, and our faith.
Nothing as she knows I am always right.
Joking apart there are many things as there are 29 years between our ages. It never seems to come to a full scale argument though as we seem to be able to agree to disagree and leave it at that.
Mostly we disagree about his work. I usually think he's addicted to his job at the expense of our family, and he thinks he is obligated to do their bidding at any time of day or night since it is what supports our family financially. We are both wrong and working on finding a balance
I'm happy to say we agree on holidays and visiting extended family. It is the most precious time of year for both of us - since we live far from both of our families. I'm so glad my family adores him, and his family has always been really sweet to me!
We don't " fight " anymore, we used to have disagreements on small issues when we were learning how to raise children, what is good or better for them . Soon we realized how life is different when two people love each other living apart , comparing to that when they live together under the same name in the same place. Those two individuls will remain for the rest of their life female and male. Very much seing and knowing things differently. What we've done,first, we realized that two decision can't be executed at the particular need to be solved . Learning to admitt that the other is right takes little by little to subduing ego, as well as practical knowledge of 1.Cor. 13 ... ( love doesn't seek it's own advantage ,to apply.)We made decision not to mind other people's sense or nonsense of lifestyle, including those of relatives nd close friends, including fellow- church- members. It has been distatestful even to participate in conversation about the others; we wanted to talk the " eternal " values instead . . . Concentration on higher value and having more private time within family helped us tremendously to grow in integrity , maintaining absolute moral values , grooving in wisdom and knowledge , increasingly getting used to be active in the deeds of the Kingdom as our Lortd Jesus Messiah instructed believers to do. Now looking back, analyzing we see when two pope decide to be tolerable ,giving the best they like to the other person, both have the best all the time...
We disagree most about education and gun control.
We agree most about humor, hiking and civil issues like LGBTQ and women's rights.
We tend to disagree most about housework! We both work full time, and I have a second job, but I also seem to have to do a lot of the work round the house.

What do you do when there is a topic that you cannot agree on with a loved one?There is one issue on which a very close family member and I have a great difference of opinion. It is like the elephant in the room as it keeps coming up, circling around, and wanting to present its ugly head. It just...

Can you be friends with someone who is passionate about political views that contradict yours?I seem to see more and more friendships and family arguments over politics. Whatever happened to "agree to disagree." Can you move past the points you disagree on? If not, why?

Why is it that one is stupid because one disagrees? Any topic of discussion applies here. Whenever a person disagrees vehemently with another person, they resort to insults and divisive behaviors. Why can't people respect differences rather than belittle differing opinions.

How can people agree to disagree on issues they must vote on?
