End Spats with Your Spouse

You don’t have to attend every fight to which you are invited. Think about it. People invite you to a fight everyday. Some do it brazenly: “That’s the dumbest thing anyone has ever said.” Some do it subtly: “What makes you think you’re doing it right?” The end result is the same: a fight. Whether someone stands nose to nose with you or perhaps very passively puts you down, the result is the same—a fight.
