If I disagree with my husband and I know I am right, how can I convince him that he is wrong?
The best way to win an argument is to avoid it. That’s a truism. It’s trite, but it’s very important advice. Sometimes if a woman is gifted with tact, she waits for an opportunity when everything is going smoothly and her husband is grateful to her; then she can bring up the subject in a way that will cause him to admit it. But otherwise it’s best not to confront him with his error.
Now how to deal with it, it depends on the problem. Sometimes the problem is not that important so it’s best to forget about it because it will cause more problems by discussing it. If it’s an important problem then you wait for an auspicious opportunity – not now just because it’s bothering you – you wait for the right moment and then you can discuss it in a level-headed way.
