30 Tips to Stay Married 30 Years, Today: Carefully Choose the Hills Worth Dying On

this is the com­pan­ion of Don’t sweat the small stuff. Care­fully Choose the Hills Worth Dying On.

While ques­tions like

Do you want a blue bed­spread vs a yel­low one?
What type of flow­ers do we plant in the front
Do you buy Tide or Gain to do the laundry?

aren’t worth a dis­pute things like…

Can we afford this House?
How Big a Car Loan can we take.
Do we move across the coun­try
Do we pay for Pri­vate School for the kids?

…are things that are impor­tant because they will affect finan­cial and social future of you, your spouse and your kids. A bad deci­sion here can make for a rough life so such ques­tions have to be worked soberly and care­fully, even if it leads to a fight.

Fur­ther­more there may be times when one’s self respect is at stake. While such times are rare and with wis­dom may not come up at all, at such times it may be nec­es­sary to take a stand that has to pro­voke a crisis.

There are times to put your foot down in a mar­riage, if you’re going to do so make sure it’s some­thing more impor­tant than pan­cakes for break­fast or tak­ing the short cut to the party.

If you’re going to fight and die on a hill be damn sure that hill is worth dying on.
