My partner and I are both competitive and don’t like to be wrong. At first, this was amusing, but it’s turning into a real problem because neither of us will back down in an argument. Help!* Joanne, by email *

Tracey says: This is the question you both need to answer honestly: “Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?” If it’s more important to both of you to win the battle, regardless of how disruptive it is, you’re better off being single. Love is about compromise and finding solutions that suit both of you, not scoring points.
