If you're right, you're right. Don't be an asshole about it.

Please respect her situation, posters. My boyfriend is a narcissist (which is not a personality trait, it's a personality disorder much like being a sociopath) and it's very, very stressful to be involved with someone who pathologically has to be right all the time. Emotional arguments become ten times more passionate and destructive because of it. OP, I don't know if that is your situation, but it gives me a little bit of hope to read your post anyway.

Being right is worth it, but i agree with antilegomena.

No argument is worth loosing a meaningful relationship over. But if your always fighting and thats a normal thing, its a sign to break it off.

Being right has never been that important to me. I would much rather admit I'm wrong and let them have the satisfaction of being right, than to argue about it. And if they truly are wrong, they'll find out sooner or later.... and that brings even more satisfaction when they tell me "you were right."
