I think parents disagree all the time, I mean, we are two different people. The most important thing to remember is not to disagree in front of your children. I think you have to take a deep breath, count to five, whatever you have to do. Step out of the room together, hash it out in the other room, even agree to disagree, if that's what you have to do. You just have to be a united front when you are disciplining your children or they will manipulate you. They will go for the weaker of the two. They will find a way around it. They need to know that you two are, absolutely, standing behind each other. Then you have to work at really doing that with your spouse and stand behind each other. The kids can read it. They can feel it. They know if it's genuine or not.
