Who's better about trying to meet in the middle - you or your partner? Is compromising an issue in your relationship? How do you get through it?

We are both very compromising. We are probably equal in that respect.

I think we both try to do it, equally.

Same here - we never really fight. We know what's important to the other and respect those priorities. We don't even compromise much - it just isn't necessary!

I'm better at compromising. Since the very beginning of our relationship I was well aware of how stubborn and set in his ways he was. I choose to accept it then, and I choose to accept it now. It's not that he isn't willing to compromise, it just takes him a little longer than me to do it.

I am the compromiser. I knew that going into the relationship many years ago, though. My husband rarely ever thinks to compromise and has an anger issue when it might be suggested of him....

He has learned to listen to a point--but that is about the extent of his ability to compromise--unless he will lose everything about the issue.

I'm better, probably because I have more experience with it. My partner has never really needed to compromise before.

Eh, we both kind of suck at it. Luckily we agree on all the major things, our values line up, the way we want to raise our daughter (for now anyways) lines up, and we agree on most of the minor things, too. So it's always silly little things. I *think* I'm better at compromising than he is...he will "compromise" but it often comes at a price, so generally I'm the one to bend just to avoid the drama that comes with his compromises. But we're both really stubborn and hard headed!

Normally, we're both pretty stubborn. With each other, we both compromise quite a bit. No doubt we have butted heads, but we always work it out.

I am. He's very old fashioned.

Me a bit, but we're both pretty stubborn. It helps that I tend to be more mellow and go with the flow than she is
