Set the Scene

If you are going to discuss something honestly that can be touchy, make sure you do so in a good setting. Donīt open up a difficult subject when both of you are tired, just home from work and cranky about the day. Give yourselves time to have a relaxed attitude, a clear mind and a good outlook. This will help the discussion focus on the issues at hand, and not get inflamed by an unpleasant truth into a full blown confrontation.
