    Sometimes it is that easy, unless, of course, it was your fault.

    If you can’t fight like you use to it may be you ran out of way’s to make up.

    Or they have finally figured out that at least for some things it does not really matter who was “Right” and that the issue is not worth the effort of staying upset.

    It’s such a rare occurrence with these two that I’m surprised they remember how they used to fight.

    Prior to any fight it’s best to ask yourself how much time and energy is worth the effort, and how much of a positive difference will the outcome make over the long term for either or both sides. If you had the same fight prior then why is it the same cause now?

    Another measurement when tensions are starting to brew is to ask yourself if you can remember when the last fight occurred and what was the cause for it. If you can’t pin it then you might be fighting for the sake of fighting.

    You’ve both used up your best shots at one another. Now it’s all “Yeah, yeah. I’ve heard it before.” 8^ )

    “Just don’t have the same energy.”

    “Just going through the motions.”

    “And it’s all your fault!”

    my husband and i never raised our voices at each other..we gave eachother the silent treatment instead sitting in a room together; it worked. the silence between us drove us nuts and we talked out our disagreements.

    I don’t understand this fighting with your spouse thing. After 34 years, we still haven’t found anything worth fighting about.

    It’s kind of fun to be angry and feel like a victim when you’re young and have nothing else to do. Later on, too big a waste of time.

    Took me too many years to figure out that when my spouse comes up to me and says “I don’t want to fight” it just means they don’t want to apologize.

    That wasn’t a fight. Looks like a sulk(Janis) and a pout(Arlo) to me. No dishes pitched or doors slammed.

    Don’t focus on the fighting… focus on the making-up afterward! <3

    The worst part of any argument for fight is that first mili second in which you realize that you might be wrong.

    Makeup sex is the only good reason to start a fight.

    Why fight at all? Disagreements sure. And Janice has such a wide smile in the last panel.

    I don’t think in the 50 or so years we have been together (41 of them married) we have ever had a fight. No, I am not dreaming or forgetting, we have never had a fight. Maybe a couple of very minor disagreements, but no fights.

    If one of wants to do something or go somewhere, the other says okay and we do it. I have often joked that when we used to Boston on trips my husband took me to Orchard House (Louisa May Alcott is my favorite author) as a treat for me whether I wanted to go there or not on that trip – he wanted to make sure we went as he knows how much I like her books and he knows more about Alcott than any man needs to know, same as I know more about James Bond and about Ian Fleming than any woman needs to know.

    He wanted to start doing 18th reenacting – no question but we would, we got patterns and I made us clothing. I want to go to embroidery exhibitions – he will have planned it before I can tell him about it.
