Winning a resort stand-off with your wife....

Anyone ever arrive at a 'line in the sand' dispute over 2 resorts for a vacation with your spouse? You've got 2 really stubborn people, and it's a battle of wills at this point.

I'm looking for anyone who's been through this, and what mental warfare techniques you used to impose your will. Thanks!

Let her win , is the best suggestion conditional on you selecting next vacation

Wish I could help mmcdan, but hubby-to-be just said "ok hun, whatever you want" LOL...What a smart man :D

Seriously though, we haven't been yet, and I did all the research, so he just went with what I came up, based on what we were looking for.

Now ironically, he's been looking at my pro/con list of various resorts for a future trip after our honeymoon this August - we ARE at an impasse regarding how "lively" we'd go next time around.

And I did agree to a trip to Vegas ( a dream of his) so we'll see what happens. Why don't you take turns choosing resorts - that way, you get to go again!!

Good luck!!

Just put your foot down. BE A MAN and book YOUR resort.

COMPROMISE!! Decide what is more important, you winning and having a poor vacation or her winning and you both become winners. You don't have

to win all the battles to win the war!!
