Some couples tell our correspondent how they would handle the situation if their partners nag
I’ll quit the relationship
Nagging is one behavioural flaw that is condemnable in women, not to talk of in a man. There’s no reason whatsoever that would make me stay in a relationship with a man who nags. People who nag tend to find a problem with everything and drain one’s happiness. I can’t stay in such a relationship. I know the world expects people to condone their partners’ flaws and help correct them. But staying with a partner that nags is a no-no for me. I want to be happy and I do not have the time to waste with a person who finds any reason to nag.
I’ll end such a union
Nagging is probably the trait I dislike the most in a partner. Nothing drains me more than it and it saddens me when I have a nagging partner. I once had a partner that nagged about everything; I had to end the relationship as I was always unhappy around her. I think it is emotionally draining trying to correct a nagging partner. For my mental health, I’ll always choose to quit such a relationship. Forever is too long to be unhappy.
I’ll talk with him
Nagging is a trait or behaviour that damages relationships. However, there is no bad situation that cannot be made better and there is no bad behaviour that with time cannot be unlearnt. Nagging too can be unlearned. If my partner nags, I will communicate with him to understand the things or words that irk him easily and cause him to nag. Then I can properly make amends if necessary or probably avoid actions that cause him to nag, especially if emotions are high.
I’ll do my best to change her
Of all the bad traits for my partner to have, nagging is the one I fear the most. I can’t even imagine living with a woman who is always nagging about one thing or the other, it would drive me crazy. However, I understand that in every relationship, there is always room for growth, so I will do my best to make her change her attitude and also try to avoid the things that make her nag. But if that doesn’t work, the relationship has to end. I need my peace of mind.
I’ll quit the union if there’re no changes
Nagging is a serious problem in every relationship and I cherish my peace of mind a lot. If I have a partner that nags, due to the love I have for him, I will probably talk to him about it and if it persists I will try to avoid the things that make him nag. But if for some reason that doesn’t cut it, I’ll leave the relationship because I get riled up easily so it’s just going to be causing numerous fights. Better to have my peace of mind alone than be stuck with an easily irritable person all in the name of being in a relationship.
I can’t imagine living with a nagging partner
Every relationship has its peculiar problems. No relationship is perfect. However, if I have a partner that nags, we could talk about it and I’ll try to tell her how her nagging affects me wrongly. But if I notice after the talk she refuses to change; we just have to go our separate ways. I can’t imagine living with a woman who I’m not happy to go home to meet. I enjoy being happy especially with the people I love and spend time with.
I might suggest therapy
For some persons, nagging is their default response to unhappy or uncomfortable situations. It isn’t necessarily the ideal way to handle things, but it is what they know how to do. Sometimes, people who nag a lot don’t even know what they’re doing is draining to their partner. If I have a partner that nags, I will most certainly talk to him and figure out a way to make things better and lessen his nagging. I believe that with love and communication, a nagging partner can realise what they’re doing wrong and make adjustments. I might even suggest therapy so he can talk with an expert and get help in overcoming this problem.
I can’t add a nagging partner to hard life
A person who nags all the time can never be truly happy; there’s always one thing or the other that makes them unhappy. This kind of unhappiness is infectious and I try as hard as possible to avoid unhappiness. Life is already hard enough; I can’t add a nagging partner to the mix. Of course, every human comes with one bad trait or the other. But the idea of living with a person who nags all the time is not one trait I can condone. That relationship has to end.
No point staying with a partner who nags
What am I doing with a partner that nags? I am not ready for such stress. If my partner cannot talk to me nicely and always refuses to settle disputes civilly after a dispute or after finding something I did offensive, there is nothing I would be doing with him. I want to enjoy this life, and any partner who nags will not let me do so. It is a big no for anybody who nags for me.
I can’t condone nagging
Nagging is a serious issue that cannot be overlooked in any relationship. No matter how much I love my partner, nagging is one thing that might turn me off. My relationship should be a haven for me and my partner, but nagging can take away that much-cherished peace. If unfortunately, I have a nagging partner, I will do my best to make things work between us. But if I find out that it’s not possible to help her change, I’ll have to end the relationship. I love happiness and I cherish my peace of mind even more.
