Say Uncle!

When you and your spouse/mate have an argument, who typically initiates the makeup process?

Is it always one person?

Does it vary based on the argument?

Are apologies necessary for every instance?

I typically initiate the makeup process b/c I don't like to go to bed angry. It also varies based on the argument, sometimes my husband will put his pride down and communicate when he knows he's done something. It really does depend on what's going on. Sometimes I will become stubborn as well b/c I feel like I'm always the one initiating a conversation for us to make up. I believe apologies are necessary even if we don't always apologize I do believe that they are necessary.

It depends. My husband has a short fuse that fizzles very quickly. So he'll usually apologize within a few minutes. But his apologies are more like, "I'm sorry I got so mad, but you know me. Hardy har har." In my case, when I'm wrong I apologize. My apologies usually go something like, "I'm sorry you got me so mad, but you know me. Hardy har har."

Late reply...I feel apologies are necessary to heal any hurts. It is an active display of love and respect for your mates feelings. Love u!
