How do you give feedback to your spouse if you don't agree with something they've said or done?


  1. Hmmm, well what I would say is, it's not always done the same. It depends on what it is. You learn to pick your battles and speak up if it really matters. Sometimes we get it right and talk about it in a mature manner, and sometimes we don't and feelings get hurt. The important thing is to learn from those situations, so you can reduce their frequency.

  2. Ditto to Louise's comments. Depending on the situation, these kinds of conversations can be different every time. Personally, I tend to use a tone in my voice when I don't agree with something and it often doesn't come out well. This is something I need to continue to work on.

  3. do like Nike says "Just do it", but in a nice, respectful manner. I have always been one for communication, not all communication will be good, but its always good to voice your opinion on issues that you don't agree with. Now, how you go about this is another story, you should speak to your spouse (or anyone for that matter) as you would like to be spoken to....Sheryl n Val
