How do you deal with a husband who is never wrong?

Unfulfilled desire for recognition in one’s professional or job life: A person’s well-being depends on having a sense of purpose and feeling wanted. People have a strong need to believe that the work they do in life is valuable and respected by others around them. It’s critical for a person’s happiness and self-esteem to feel that their contribution is recognized and valued, whether they work in a formal setting — from a cashier to a CEO — or at home — managing a family and/or caring for children. If the urge for acknowledgment in one’s professional or work-contribution life is not realized, anger, resentment, despair, and even melancholy are common reactions.

Those who don’t get the attention they deserve at work become defensive. They attempt harder to have everyone near to them appreciate their contribution and general worth and value to compensate for the unfulfilled demand. To put it another way, when someone feels underpaid and unloved, they go into psychological overdrive to convince others of their worth and value. Because men and women who never make a mistake have such a strong, unfulfilled desire for attention, they spend a lot of time and effort creating a character that makes them appear to be the polar opposite of someone who is vulnerable or faulty. They begin to perform in front of the public as if they are a powerful figure, gifted and superior to most others.

In one’s personal life, there is an unmet demand for recognition: People must have their basic emotional requirements for respect and caring addressed in order to feel happy and be able to associate consistently and amicably with individuals in close proximity to them (spouses, partners, close friends, coworkers, and bosses). People get bitter, furious, and even sad when they feel neglected, undervalued, or disrespected for an extended period of time. Someone who acts as if they’re always correct isn’t getting their basic emotional demands for respect and acknowledgment addressed in their daily lives, without a doubt.

If a person does not feel sufficiently valued by those closest to them in their personal life, he or she will become defensive and adopt personality traits and defense mechanisms to prevent their ego from feeling awful or inadequate. These people frequently develop the I’m-never-wrong mentality to compensate for the feelings that arise as a result of prominent persons in their current personal lives making them feel invisible or irrelevant.

This mental method, despite its efforts, does not work. Because it’s impossible for anybody to be superhuman, or always right, the personality orientation – always right, never wrong – isn’t authentic or rooted in reality (it’s impossible for anyone to be always correct), the foundation of this belief system is flawed and maladaptive. As a result, men and women who act as if they are never incorrect fail to attain their goal of gaining respect and recognition from others. Instead, this inflexible personality style creates problems, leading to increased resentment or hatred from others. Regrettably, the cycle persists. The person who never makes a mistake becomes even more irritated because they’re working so hard to obtain the respect they believe they deserve but aren’t receiving it. They become more bitter and enraged with time, and they become much more determined to prove their worth and correctness. For everyone, the want to be regarded and loved is so strong that they would go to any length to obtain it, even if it means sabotaging themselves.

You’ve probably heard the joke about trying to change a tiger’s stripes. Simply said, attempting to change your spouse or partner’s most basic personality traits is a futile task. The psychological urge for these people to always be right and never be wrong is so strong and has taken so long to develop that the personality trait’s nearest relative is actual titanium; it’s not going anywhere. However, how you, their spouse or partner, react to them can sway them. How do you deal with it? You employ a variety of mental strategies.

To begin, seeking out a couples therapist is the most successful technique for dealing with a spouse who is never wrong. Though many men and women with this personality feature will refuse to talk to a therapist because their self-esteem isn’t strong enough to endure any constructive criticism or feedback from a therapist, it’s always a good idea to recommend counseling — even if it’s just one session — as a possibility. If treatment isn’t an option, the only other choice (other than quitting the relationship, which may or may not be necessary) is to change how you react to their annoying personality feature.

When your partner acts as if they’ve descended from the skies to bless you with their superior, always-right presence, it feels intimate, but it’s not. Your spouse is like this with anyone with whom they have a professional or personal relationship. Understand that your spouse’s need to be correct all of the time isn’t a sign that they think you’re innately inferior to them; it’s simply a fear of being disrespected or undervalued by anyone — stranger, boss, spouse — that drives their behavior. Though they appear to be powerful and superior, they actually have a fragile ego. People who are confident in themselves don’t need to be correct all of the time; it’s those who are struggling with self-doubt and poor self-esteem who insist on being the brightest and wisest people in the room. Men and women who never make a mistake can’t be vulnerable because, according to their flawed beliefs, being vulnerable would injure them or be used against them.

People who are never incorrect must win at all costs in order to be elected “Most Respected.” If you challenge these men and women, they will match you note for note, so let them win when the topic isn’t vital. Sit with the topic for a day or two while the two of you are negotiating a critical subject, and develop a calculated, non-emotional approach to the issue. Showing these folks any negative emotions, such as anger or frustration, will only increase their rage. Accountability is these people’s arch-enemy, so don’t waste your time attempting to hold them accountable or demand fairness. When these people’s need to be correct is activated, they will never, ever admit to being vulnerable.

Expecting fairness and mutual acceptance of reality in a partnership isn’t insane. These men and women, unfortunately, do not value such things. It’s unrealistic to expect to never be disturbed by this personality feature again, but it is reasonable to expect that you will not lose your mind dealing with them. As long as you have enough prosocial outlets, you can cope effectively and maintain the relationship going well enough. Talking to a therapist, meditation, various sorts of physical activity, venting to close friends, writing in a notebook, and speaking with your minister, rabbi, or preacher are just a few examples.

Use these simple techniques to revive your husband’s love for you, and make him devoted to you again!

Don’t take your spouse’s need to be right all of the time personally, but don’t become too emotional when their desire to be right is activated. At the end of the day, everyone has defects, and it is our responsibility to ensure that we respond to people closest to us in a way that makes us feel good, connected, and supported.

Why can’t my husband admit when he’s wrong?

He could be trying to cover up his own doubts, humiliation, or unpleasant emotions by always trying to be right. Low self-esteem and the fear of being viewed as weak or essentially flawed if he acknowledges to being mistaken are at the root of the never-wrong personality.

How do you deal with husband who thinks he is always right?

In couple’s therapy, one of the most typical dynamics I find is when one partner fails to consider that they may not always be correct.

The contexts can range from sex to money to children. And the specific decisions that must be taken might range from little (when is the best time to walk the dog) to major (when is the best time to go shopping) (where to live).

Some controlling partners choose certain contexts they want to control, while others have total control. Many people find it impossible to lose a debate on any subject.

The controlling spouse acts as a parent/teacher to their counterpart’s child/student, enforcing their rules and disciplining them if they disobey. The penalties can take many different forms, including withholding affection or sex, verbal insults, and even divorce. By openly rebelling, refusing, or behaving passive-aggressively, the juvenile counterpart frequently feeds or inflames the dynamic.

Instead, here are eight strategies for dealing with a partner who refuses to negotiate power in a relationship:

  • Extend Empathy: Most people who are in control suffer worry when they lose control. They may or may not be aware of it, but rather than resisting their authority, acknowledge their worry and offer to compromise. Your opposition will only heighten, not decrease, their desire for control.
  • Provide Evidence: If you believe you are correct, give your partner data to back up your claim. If the situation is financial, for example, provide the proper figures to back up your claim. Evidence can help to alleviate the worry that comes with viewing things your way.
  • Present your credibility to your spouse if you have previously proven to be correct on a comparable or related matter that is currently being disputed.
  • Control Your Emotions: The more upset or emotional you become with a controller, the more unreasonable they will perceive you to be. Present your point of view in a calm and sensible manner.
  • Choose Your Battles: Don’t get caught up in a parent-child conflict. Instead of resisting for the sake of resisting, pick your battles.
  • Be objective: Admit that your partner has proven to be more competent in some areas than you. They should be given more authority in these areas.
  • Keep an eye on the bright side: Not all control is bad, especially if it keeps you safe from turmoil. When your partner’s control has kept the relationship from exploding, give positive reinforcement.
  • Increase Insight: Once you’ve acknowledged your partner’s fear, you could try to explain why they’re acting the way they are. Controllers, for example, may have endured significant losses as a youngster or been forced to deal with inept parents. Discussing these past events and connecting them to a current need for control may help to alleviate that need.

A word of caution: attempting to negotiate with someone who is extremely controlling will be difficult. If nothing else seems to be working, you still have a few options, albeit unpleasant ones: To begin, you can choose to keep your relationship and submit to the control. Some people are simply unwilling to jeopardize their relationship; the pain of a breakup is simply not worth it to them. Second, you have the option of ending your relationship. It is entirely up to you to make this decision.

Of course, getting professional assistance is an option, but overly controlling people dislike handing over power to anyone, including a therapist.


Any healthy partnership requires effective communication. You must create an environment in which you and your partner can openly discuss anything and everything about your relationship, including your anger patterns, hurtful comments, and any bad conduct that disturbs you. When you communicate, you can solve a variety of issues.

Do cheaters ever apologize?

When someone is caught having an affair, their first instinct may be to apologize profusely to the person with whom they cheated. Most cheaters are remorseful for hurting their spouse. However, they have no regrets about the encounter.

Why does my husband turn everything around on me?

Because he is insecure, your husband or boyfriend may turn everything against you. That is to say, he could be suffering from low self-esteem. As a result, putting you down and delivering the message that you’re not good enough makes him feel better. This is true for several reasons.
