How to Agree to Disagree
Sometimes couples who fight together, stay together—and they're better for it
The Fight: We see too much of each other's family, in the wrong ways, at the wrong times.
The Fundamental Disagreement: Honestly, this isn't a fight we have. We love each others families, have kind of lucked out on location, and feel like we dodged a bullet that a lot of our friends haven't. But I think, in those cases, it's never about not liking the partner's family; it's about not liking the way you spend time together. Some people are used to spending solid blocks of time with a family (think weekend away); other people have families that meet for dinner and then depart.
How We Deal: Knowing which kind of family quality time your partner expects and likes goes a long way toward ending any of these family feuds.
