I have a situation on my hands. My wife and I disagreed about something, and now it has become obvious I was right. Now, we know this can mean real trouble for a husband. Can anyone help me out on how to handle this jam???

Well...I'd start with flowers...then a nice dinner...a piece of jewelry would be nice. Then a wonderful card that tells her how much you love her and then in the card apologize for being right.

That should do it...it would for me :D.

OH well, I guess that is the man's punishment for being right all the time. ;)

Hmmph. You have probably already made a long distance woman type connection with her as we speak.

I'd suggest you just tell her that you were right, and she knows it.

The deal is, you're going to take your wuppin' one way or the other. You might as well be upfront about it, and get it over with! :)

All about the woman's ego then?
Cater to it no matter what?

How about, the woman should learn to be humble enough to admit when she is wrong - without reprisals?

How about, give credit where credit is due?


Or is it with women such a thing of pure vanity?



Both sides should be adult (mature) enough to admit defeat - or to claim victory - without putting the other in an insulting or demeaning position.

This is why we (the women) LOVE Cheech... she is so very wise and always RIGHT like the rest of us women.

If you play this off right you can completely avoid any punishment for being right... it is a tricky move but with practice you can pull it off!

But I question if a card telling her you are right is the way to go about it. Gleefully telling her you were right may just inflame the situation instead of throwing a bucket of water on it.

Sure, I have read the rules; I have tried playing by the rules.

And I pretty much lost my sense of humor when she decided to give her attention to others and divorce me.

So I doubt that I will be stroking any female egos any time soon.
It can be the most futile of endeavors - like trying to fill up a black hole.

I'm sorry to read about the demise of your marriage.

That being said, and very sad, it would probably have been better if you'd just not commented in this thread that is clearly intended to be humorous.

My dh says the rules are as following
man says to wife:

1. Yes dear
2. It's all my fault dear
3. You are always right dear.............

LOL

then again sometimes when he says YES DEAR.........I know he means he THINKS he is right.........LOL.

seriously though dh and I dont keep score............well much.......LOL......but I know I just know I am usually right regardless of what he says or implies with Yes, Dear..........

LOL LOL

For a moment I will pretend you are serious in your cry for help. I had a long-standing conflict with DH about, oh, whatever. We just argued a lot. Disagreed on simple things like what was the meaning of a word. (I guess that arose from the fact that he was a Yankee, and I a Southern Belle.)

One day I picked up a dictionary and looked up the word in question. It turned out we were both right!

I learned to say to him (even when I KNEW I was right), "You could be right dear. You usually are."

And when it would come out that I was right, I'd say, "I'm sorry, I know that you hate it when I'm right."

Another defuser is to say, "I could be wrong of course, I was once."

Humor definitely helps. We don't argue any more. He is no longer offended by how smart I am. Oh, yes, I also tell him that he is lucky to have married such a smart woman. Eventually (after I told him this about 50 times) he started to agree that he was indeed, very smart to have chosen an intelligent woman!
:rofl::rofl::rofl:

Now it's time to go join him in our latest endeavor - studying geology together.

Good point indeed! Ok change the card to read "I'm sorry honey... you are always right!"

My motto: I may not always be right but I am never wrong!

I will say there are exceptions to the rules :hug:. But I find it so hard to be an adult Duane. I try and try and try and it just doesn't happen. I mean...just last night I stuck my tongue out in church to a friend's child :(. I'm so ashamed...there has to be a book somewhere that covers hwo to be an adult for the unteachable! I'll keep trying though :D.
