One of the best pieces of advice I can give to my clients is to simply own up. Of course no one enjoys being wrong in an argument, but I have to say that it feels really good to be able to just admit that you were wrong…. if you were indeed wrong. I believe that it’s a sign of maturity when you can say to your partner, “you know what, I was wrong and I’m sorry.” I promise that the benefits of this approach are endless especially if he or she is not expecting this. Try it out as an experiment and see what happens. You will see that instantaneously the intensity and seriousness of the argument just kind of dissipates and you can hug, kiss or do whatever you do (wink wink) to make up.
