The Jealousy Fight
Jealousy is like the spark to a flame, it indefinitely fuels fights. Insecurities often surface every now and then, especially if you’ve been having a bad day. Unless you’re a woman or man without insecurities, these types of fights are inevitable. Feeling possessive of your significant others is a natural instinct, we like to protect what’s ours even if it requires a bit of bickering every now and then. Point is, it’s normal to feel jealous but it’s important to talk about it with your partner and explain what’s bothering you.
The fight regarding the future is a fight that often arises especially if the two of you have been in a relationship for quite a while. This fight can also happen if the two of you rarely talk about what’s ahead, and what the two of you are expecting from the future. This can also be from the perspective of having planned too much, and too far ahead of time and it can all be simply too much. It’s a factor that can freak your partner out if you’ve got the names of your kids all planned out already.
Ever watch a movie and see two families of a couple fighting with one another? This is actually a common fight between couples. It happens more often than you think, and it’s normal! That’s what we’re trying to say. Your family is different from his, and there is a chance that they might not agree on everything. They also might annoy you, and you yourself might disagree with them but that’s part of a relationship. You’re not only building one with your significant other but you’re also building a relationship with his family.
The Fight about Spending Time Together
Sometimes these type of fights are about spending too much time together, or not enough. Nonetheless, they happen, and it’s okay to feel as though you’re not spending enough time with your partner, or that you’re spending too much and you feel somewhat smothered. Talk to your partner, tell them that you feel as though you don’t spend enough time together and that you miss them or let them know that’s good to have a bit space between the two of you, as the two of you are still individuals.
