How to Agreeably Disagree with Your Spouse

Jul 07, 2015 / Communication     

Every marriage is full of tough decisions that sometimes lead couples to disagree. But you can disagree in a kind and loving way. So here are 3 agreeable ways to disagree with your spouse. First, disagree with affirmation. Start off well by validating their position and by finding common ground with your spouse. Second, disagree with kindness. Disagreements are much more effective when each spouse agrees to use kind words…words that build up, not tear down. Third, disagree with love. Be sure to always have your spouse’s best interests at heart when talking through a disagreement.
