    Would you rather be Right or Happy? And other life lessons...

    About 13 years into marriage, I realized I would rather be happy than right. My late husband was always right and never conceded regardless of any logic or proof I presented. This frustrated me beyond words until I learned it was okay if he thought he was right about what we had for supper...
