Man Law #44 – ‘Man Talk’ – Disagree without being Disagreeable.

This law applies to both men AND women. There are ways to disagree without insulting the character of the person or belittling their ideas. State your opinion, and do your best to listen to hers. This goes hand in hand with the concept of “Agreeing to Disagree”. The end result of a disagreement using this method is that both you and her end on good terms. Don’t call it quits because you want to see “District 9” and she wants to sit home and watch “Little Miss Sunshine” again…Only call it quits if she wants you to sit through “The Notebook” or “Twilight”….

The really crazy thing about arguing with her is that even if you two come to an immediate agreement or compromise, she may not feel better right away.  Even if you win the argument, chances are you will pay for winning in some way…

You can throw LOGICAL Arguments right out the window...

95% of the time you can throw LOGICAL Arguments right out the window...

Again, when you first start seeing each other (pre-official relationship) , you really shouldn’t be getting into that many or any arguments… If your choice of where to go on a date ends in a heated battle, call it quits on this one no matter how hot she is and refer to Man Law #29 – Be able to say “Next” and move on. If she’s difficult at the beginning, chances are she won’t be getting any better…

    This is great, thank you.

    I just started a new blog on marriage. Specifically on how men can better love their wives. I would really appreciate it if you would take a look and give me your comments and feedback.



    Coincidentally, my post today was about unresolved conflict.

      Thanks Ken! I appreciate the feedback. I’ll be sure to check out your site! The Unbreakable Man Laws is a (sometimes vain) effort to get you TO marriage and how to stay alive while dating without losing your mind along the way!

    I completely agree with this part!!!! I dumped a guy for arguing and debating an issue to death when he already had me hooked. Its always the young guys that got it all figured out….they argue and loose the most!
