Whenever we have family problems we discuss it openly and argue and debate on possible solutions. We do this a lot when we search for reasons. For example, whenever I do something off-beat, my husband would call my attention. And we would be into intense discussion, sometimes pushing us on the verge of quarreling with each other. In the end, though, we would come up with a consensus. The best solution, whoever suggested it, we would adapt.
I enjoy this setup. And I think my husband does too. Sometimes, when the husband came home from work, I told him that I missed him while he was gone for the whole day. The husband would answer me teasingly that I miss him including our good arguments. :-) It is a healthy discussion, you know. Aside from the give and take, I enjoy the simplicity of our way of life. I couldn’t ask for more. We are satisfied with whatever we have.
