Tough question? Is it better to be right or happy?

by Randy Allen

This is tough question.  Would you rather be happy or right?

As part of an experiment, a husband was instructed to agree with his wife's every opinion and request without any complaints, even if he felt his wife was in the wrong.  

They wanted to see if being stubborn got in the way of good health.

They actually found out that the wife became even more critical of her husband and his quality of life went down a great deal.

Her qualify of life also diminished, which implies, that just going along to get along doesn't really work for either spouse.  

Do you agree?
