If you've been married for a minute, you know disagreements are going to come up between the two of you. But have you ever had one of those disagreements where not only were you on opposite sides of the issue, neither one of you was willing to budge?

Guess what? You're in good company. Plenty of marriages have experienced this; they may just not be talking about it because what does it really say about your relationship if you can't figure out how to come to some type of compromise? Asking for a friend, right?

It's actually possible to agree to disagree without experiencing distress in your marriage. Meaning, both people have accepted the other's point of view without agreeing on it and they are moving on.
