Even if one likes less than 1/2 your decisions, it does not mean that the person did worse than the coin. The road not taken may have turned out to be rougher than the decision regretted.

A better solution
If the husband prefers the German model and the wife prefers the Japanese model, there is no possible way to make the "correct" decision. Because whichever one they choose, the party who did not get their choice will be second guessing their partner for the rest of their lives. Much better to throw out both of their choices, and buy the American SUV!
