Are you always the first one to say sorry?

After arguing with DH/DP do you say sorry first or him?

Always me - and I have to tell him to say sorry too, never says it on his own.

if i feel i am in the right, i dont

if i feel i might have been wrong, i do

same as him

On saturday he was going out to walk the dogs, i said you wont need a coat, he insisted he would, i said you will look stupid - he flew off the handle and stormed out with the dogs (without coat lol)

when he got back, first thing he said was im sorry i shouldnt have stormed out, and i said, yes i am sorry too, i shouldnt have said you will look stupid smile - all smoothed over, no drama

thats generally how it goes in our house

To be honest I can never be bothered to argue with DH so then there is no need to apologise ................ (I read somewhere that arguing is a healthy sign in a relationship as it shows that you do care).

always him blush I'm not very good at being wrong or saying sorry

Our arguments, thankfully infrequent, usually get to the point where we both need to apologise.

Most often it is DH that apologises first, although I'm trying to be less stubborn blush

It's almost never me first. I have a real problem with apologising.

Insomnia11 Tue 12-Jul-11 14:55:39

No,we are about the same. We both tend to know if we've been out of order.

Me, always.

Not just first, but he never says it at all.
