Your household is not a peaceful one, or a happy one. Even in the best of times, you and your mate argue. Voices are raised.
Doors are slammed. Dishes are thrown. Impulsive and wrong decisions are made. One of you likely has a habit of splitting when the chips are down, jumping in the car and taking off and only slinking back when things have cooled. But they won't cool, and they'll never cool between the two of you when both of you are so hellbent on controlling the other. What kind of match is this, with two people fighting to win rather than to love?The peace you crave begins with you. You know what sets your mate off. Don't start pulling levers when you know the results beforehand. Instead, back off. Try a different approach. Say something kind instead of something snotty. Try 'Whatever you think, honey' instead of 'My way or the highway.' And mean it! You've done your homework and chosen a mate who can stand up to you, one who is going somewhere in life.
