Reading the other thread on compromise made me think to write this. Lately, my FI’s favorite word is compromise and although it cracks me up, it also drives me nuts.
Last night we had pizza for dinner and had 2 leftover pieces. He says he is going to take the leftovers for lunch and I ask if he can leave me a piece since it was so good. He goes, “well, I really want both pieces and marriage is all about compromise, honey.” I responded with “well played FI, but don’t be surprised when I use this line right back at you!” I couldn’t stop laughing.
Any fun compromise stories?

This is going to sound really sad written down, I know but here goes. We are like little kids about who gets the TV remote and/or laptop. So we were arguing about it so much that we decided one person gets the remote and one gets the computer, but not both.

@Pupperoni: lol that’s not really a compromise at all. Your FI just got his way! If it were a real compromise he would have taken both slices for lunch but promised to make you dinner that night.

Compromise is each of you giving a little and getting a little. Compromise in this case is each of you getting one piece.

@MrsCoachBtoBee: Same with us! Computer or TV, not both.

LOL Too funny! I love that he said that, then left you a piece. That’s something my boy would do!

My FI’s a sweetheart. We’re terrible at making decisions because we’re both so worried that the other person might not be happy with it. Sometimes we’re the “What do YOU want to do?”/”I don’t know, what do YOU want to do?” couple. It can be frustrating– like when my FI gets it into his head that I want something I don’t care about, and he thinks I’m just not telling him I want it because I think he doesn’t… Whew! That sounds a little crazy now that I write it down.
