What verb or phrase do you use
There was again an argument between them but Jane was tired of having the same thing every day so she decided to ....................... although she was quite sure she was right.
Thanks, I think "concede" and "cave in" can be the words that I am looking for them.

I'm fond of capitulate.
She could also stand down, or even acquiesce.
Then there's coalesce or compromise, depending on the context. And depending on her resiliency, she could also bide her time.
