Arguments

I asked my boss this morning if she had had a nice weekend and she told me no, reason being her and her boyfriend who lives with her had had an argument on Friday night and they hadn't spoken since!!

My husband and I never leave the house on an argument and not speaking. The reason is because my husbands Mums and her first husband had a big row one day about him not having a job (a long time ago) so that day he slammed the door and went out on his pushbike never to return, he got killed on his bike. My Mum in law never forgave herself so my husband and I made a pact to never leave the house on an argument.

My boss told me both her and her boyfriend are stubborn people and wouldn't make the first move or apologise, she felt he was in the wrong. She told me she has been so miserable all weekend because of it, I told her he is probably feeling just as miserable as her but she she said she wasn't so sure.

I hope they make it up tonight, I didn't like to think she was feeling so miserable.

Are you like me or are you like my friend and her boyfriend, stubborn and find it hard to make the first move? Do you have a story to tell about such? Look forward to your responses.

Re: Arguments

I would have made up by Sunday evening at the latest. It's all very well sulking but nobody enjoys it. If you can't make up after 24 hours then you really should not be together IMO.

Re: Arguments

We men, by and large, have learned to suck it up. He should apologise even if he's not in the wrong. HE knows he's not in the wrong so that should be enough for him. Someone has to make the first move, so he can show to be the better person and make that first move.

Re: Arguments

Argument and acrimony are two different things.

Re: Arguments

"Never let the sun go down on an argument" was my grandpa's philosophy - and I agree.

Re: Arguments

Why argue in the first place? Surely it's better to discuss something and come to an amicable agreement. Nobody can change another person, all you can ever do is to change your reactions to them or the situation. Life's just too short for arguing!

Anyway, what do I know? I am single and enjoy not having any arguments with anyone peace, quiet and no hassle is brilliant!

Re: Arguments

I found my friend dead in her bed , I knew that she and her daughter had an argument a year earlier as she used to tell me how sad she was as her daughter would not talk to her. I rang her daughter and told her I was with her mum and the police . When the daughter arrived I asked if she would like me to go upstairs with her to see mum , she took my hand and I gently walked her into the bedroom , she fell to the floor sobbing and saying sorry mum over and over . It was heartbreaking to witness .

It really affected me , as there are family issues within my own family, try as I might I cant get them to forgive and forget

Re: Arguments

I used to sulk but Tony wouldn't let me.
Our arguments never lasted longer than a day.

Re: Arguments

Sorry seems to be the hardest word for some. I always make it up, life is too short.
I never sulk. Hubby used to sulk, but I have cured that.

Re: Arguments

There are some insular people, who think, the world stops and starts with them, there is no conversation to be had in these arenas.
