4 Things Couples Fight Over and How to Avoid It

Nov 27th 2015 at 12:13 PM



Regardless that you just started seeing one another or you’ve been in a relationship for over ten years, there are still going to be arguments with your partner. This is inevitable. But do you wonder what it is that other couples argue over? Here are five of the main reasons for an argument.



1. Children

One reason for an argument over children is whether you are going to have them or otherwise. If you do, you’ll fight over how to best raise them, how your families believe you should raise them, what the kids ought to eat, the amount of money you should spend on them, who should their friends be, how long should their hair be, their bedtime, and so much more.

So, the only way to make progress is by communicating and compromising. It’s very important that mutual decisions are made as no parent is always right about their kids.


2. Career

Are you both out at work or only one of you? How much time is your partner permitted to devote to his or her career? Does the career impact on family time? And there are so many other issues how a career impacts a relationship.

When there are problems, you need to talk to one another about it. Spend some quality time together at least now and again and this way it’s proof that the career of either partner is not taking over entirely.


3. Money

Most couples will argue over money. Having little money can cause a lot of stress. But, the fact is, if you have one another, you should be able to work this out. And in which case, generate a budgeting plan to save money. Likely that both partners will have to make some sacrifices, but given time, you can find a way.


4. Sex

A good sex life maintains a strong bond between couples. But the longer they are together, the more chance the sex will die off. And this is something that couples frequently argue over.

Again, communication is so important. Be open and tell them what you like and what you don’t and let them do the same.


5. The Toilet Seat

Many guys have a habit of leaving the toilet seat down and it can cause arguments. Sometimes, it has been known to escalate into a particularly serious problem.

Probably you’ve nagged and nagged but the message never gets through. Tried posting a message above the toilet? Another approach is to avoid nagging but sit down and have a serious discussion over the matter instead.
