Don't let your ego, the habit or desire to be combative, and wanting to be 'right' ruin the comradary and morale of the relationship. The words, "Oh OK, I understand. I can see where you're coming from... If I was in your position, I might feel the same way..." go a long ways in securing and keeping open lines of communication. But, when one or both of you become insensitive to each other, there's no room for open and honest communication to win.
If open and honest communication are not a part of the relationship, you WILL NOT have a healthy, happy, and prosperous union. And without these things being present in a relationship, PEACE will be VERY hard to find.
Understand that in order for a relationship to produce it's purpose, AGREEMENT must be at the core. The enemy of PEACE thrives on breaking the state of PEACE by breaking the agreement. Because he understands THE POWER OF AGREEMENT, according to Matthew 18:19.
Often, when people see a POWER COUPLE, they want what the couple has, but don't understand that in all of the TRUE POWER COUPLES, there's one thing in common --- no matter race, religion, occupation, socio-economic background, or city/country of origin --- AGREEMENT! They have the ability to stay in agreement and in an AGREEABLE state of MIND with one another. Period. Without AGREEMENT, there is no RELATE-ionship because you and the other refuse to show that you can RELATE.
Staying in AGREEMENT and in an AGREEABLE state of MIND is the TRUE WORK in ALL relationships.
Until next time... Meditate on Matthew 18:19 in all your personal and business relationships. It will serve you well.
