Because I'm always right and get my way and my significant other is a door mat. :lol Not. It's because we continue to communicate even when we're mad as hell. May have a blow up...get huffy...don't talk for awhile then try again. It usually starts something like this: "You didn't listen" or " I thought this" " You didn't let me finish" "That's not what I want", "That's not what I meant". "You're a nag", "You're a1/?x", " You always want it your way" "Why don't you" blah blah blah Finishes with: "Okay what was it you really wanted or meant or need". What can we/should we do so that we both feel validated, heard, acknowledged and satisfied that the outcome is fair and that no one has been unfairly taken advantage of or whatever.(paraphrasing of course) Then we hug say sorry. Implement or take action on the course of action decided on and continue on. Works for me. So..... What's taking so long NHL team owners and NHLPA? Or do you really want a divorce?
