Wednesday Mailbag (on Thursday)

My mother taught me that if I don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

So thank God it's Wednesday.  I don't have to talk.  I can just ask my Wednesday mailbag question.

What do you do in a marriage when one person wants chicken for dinner and one wants beef?  Or one wants to vacation in Hawaii, and the other in Colorado?

It seems if you compromise and eat fish, or vacation in California, both parties lose.
But, if you eat chicken or go to Colorado, one person wins, and one person loses, which to me seems like a perfect recipe for keeping score and resentment.

Those close enough to us know how to read between the lines on this one.

This is a heavy question for a Wednesday mailbag I realize, but like we said before, not always light and fluffy on this blog!
