Marriage is improved by the two or three things not said each day.

You really don’t have to share everything you are thinking or feeling. So your spouse chose the wrong way to say something? So you disagree about the best route to take home? So your spouse came home a few minutes later than they said they would?

So many arguments begin with sneering or ridiculing the other about minor, day to day issues.

Hold your tongue and keep the peace.

Some wise words to use in the face of a disagreeable comment are. “You may be right about that.” With these words, you are not agreeing or disagreeing, merely acknowledging that you have heard what was said. You are not negating or commenting on it. And then just moving on.
