  • "My mother warned me you'd do this!"

    Something must have seriously infuriated you, because what you're doing here is letting him know that there are others in your "camp." "You are trying to validate your 'side' of an argument, as though you're marshalling an army to your side," says Orlov. But that's never a good idea, because it's telling him that you're not on his side, or on the side of your relationship.

    You should never let the opinions of others' dictate your relationship, but if there is some kernel of truth to a concern that your mother raised, then think about how to address that. "Maybe your mother said, 'He's too cheap,'" says Orlov. "Say to him, 'Why do you sometimes seem reluctant to spend money on things we need?'" Without ganging up on him, that could open up a discussion about money worries that stem from his childhood, for example. And if you're just lashing out? Hold your tongue and focus on the root of what's making you mad. In the end, coming to a solution together will make you feel better than unleashing hurtful words will.
