When you spouse has an idea or potential solution to a problem, seek to better understand the reasoning behind the idea before summarily dismissing it.
Even if you don’t agree with it or see some drawbacks, first validate the idea. “Coming from that angle, it makes sense that you would think that way. ” “It is a good idea and that the same time I am concerned.” “That sounds great. I wish it could work out like that. Maybe we can tweak it a bit.”
