Agreed Melody, but as you infer, with love there must also be understanding each other and reaching out to see your partners side of the disagreement. I feel what is the most important is that couples learn to discuss issues without getting mad at each other. One issue that used to come up in our marriage is that I often speak emphatically, which my then sensitive young lady took as if I was yelling at her but once she saw how many Americans speak the same, and along with me finally realizing what the problem was and explaining it to her, she never got mad at me again for that.
Men if you speak emphatically at times, be sure to explain that to your lady, that you are not yelling at her and also try hard to keep that under control, although it is often hard to immediately change what a person has been doing for most of their lives.
Agreed Mr. Lee Speaking about emphatically as if you were yealling! Your sensitive young wife should not be surprised about this actitud as it can be found among Filipino too while discussing
. How many Americans or worst how many Italians
(who used to yell not only in a discussion) speak the same that I am used to it..i only get mad only if it could be happened in a public that is out of control.
As to Sir Mark, agreed. There will be always disagreement between people regardless of culture and origin but character of one could help that disagreement resulted into a friendly one. Yeah it is very helpful if both understand prior to marriage the differences in culture.
