Default When you have a disagreement/fight with your SO...

How does the 'guilty party' normally make it up?

Do you (or they) expect a gift? Labor/service of some sort? Does an apology cover it.........how about after they've let it go on for a week or more?

When Kevin and I disagree, a gift is not an acceptable choice because any time I look at it I just think of why I have it. We joke about it....*out shopping, see HUGE diamond and say* Uh ya, next time you screw up......... But the reality is I would/could never enjoy it for a minute so what's the point?

I see other couples give gifts as apologies and I don't know how they do it, I wish I could.........Kevin wishes I could too 'cause it's easier for him than saying he was wrong, LOL

We... don't fight. Like, ever. Hahaha.

If we did, make-up sex would be the way to go.

We just admit it if we were wrong and/or say sorry. Or we come to a compromise. No tokens or dramatic actions required. We also never go to bed angry, so no time to buy gifts.

We don't really fight..... We are pretty boring and just get over it. I hate fights, so usually a hug is all I want!

Fine - an apology and hug and then get to it.

Kevin and I have been married 14 years. There are 5 children involved, a mortgage, we live a mile away from his parents, plenty of work to be shared, etc........so there are going to be disagreements. Albeit not NEARLY as many as most of our friends (married or dating) we average about 1 good fight/disagreement a year and then a few small ones here and there.

I miss 'the good old days' of dating when we didn't really have anything to disagree about! LOL

It depends on whether the fight was about a gift or not.


In all seriousness, we have little bicker-fights but I can't remember the last time we had an all out FIGHT fight. It would never occur to me to expect or give a gift as an apology after a fight, though.

We talk it out once we are calm and apologies are made and that is that

On the rare occassion that we argue we always end with us both apologiZing and we hug IMO, there is no single guilty party. If we argue we hold equal reaponsibility for te argument
