If your spouse only values comfort and convenience: One word-compromise. And lots of searching for something that is comfortable and attractive. My husband loves recliners because he feels like they are the only chairs that give him the back support he likes. However, most recliners are hideous. So a while ago we bought one of these ultra-comfy but super-hideous recliners and I’ve hated the look of it pretty much ever since. When we moved, he finally saw that it looked bad in our new house and agreed to start looking for a new one, and hopefully one that is aesthetically appealing.
