So everytime my Fiance and I disagree with one another about something we solve it with a round of poker. Whomever wins gets to have their idea used and the other accepts this. Not ever huge life choices. Just things like, who gets to name the dog or what paint colour goes in the living room. Is this weird? LOL. One of my friends told me we were weird cause its like doing rock paper scissor on life. But its never for anything big. Just minor details. Prevents fighting about silly issues and we get to spend time together playing cards. Im I wrong for thinking its okay to do this? Lol

if it works for you, then fine! as long as you don’t decide major issues this way, and both of you can be happy with either option, i don’t see the problem. if one person is always sulking, you might need a new strategy.

@kitzy: Were both pretty good. So instead of arguing about little things we just play for the choice. We both accept the outcome and move on with life. It seems to be working so far. I was told, choices shouldnt be gambled. But every choice is a gamble…

Your not the only ones, husband and I flip coins all the time for stuff like where we eat dinner, who has to go pick up something from the grocery store if we ran out, who has to be the DD for the night, etc. 🙂

So good to see another poker-playing Bee! I think it’s awesome that you guys play poker to work stuff out. We love poker, board games, whatever, but I can’t say we’ve ever actually made a decision based on the outcome of the game.
Funny story: we bought our first home this past May. We agreed on this couch set that we loved, but I wanted brown and he wanted black (he wants black everything). He woke me up the next morning and said “Hey babe, I know we want that couch but we gotta decide which color, I’m thinking I should just flip a coin…” And I still have my eyes half closed, and I sleepily tell him, “Nahhh don’t flip a coin, I’ll just wait til you decide to get the brown one” and I go back to sleep. Needless to say, our brown couches are fantastic 🙂

Haha DH and I have the opposite problem, neither of us can make little decisions at times (like where to eat…because neither of us care). So I installed an app on my phone called This or That and when we can’t decide, I program in our choices and the app decides for us. Of course we don’t use this for big life decisions or anything!
