A perfect marriage is not the one where nothing ever goes wrong. If you have this fairy tale perception about marriages, then you may land up yourself in the soup. So before this thought gets you in any kind of trouble, buckle up and realize that fighting is an integral part of any marriage. ‘No fight’ is as equally terrible for a relationship as is the ‘continuous fighting’. Here is a short list of what sparks a fight, simple ways to prevent them and how to solve them if they get out of hand.
7 Reasons Why Couples Fight In A Marriage
1. Daily Chores
This is a common issue that pops up every now and then. Shirking simple chores is something that all couples are guilty of and sometimes, it ignites a row that can bring other small problems on to the table. Since household chores are so small, you tend to ignore them and if this happens over a period of time, your partner will throw a fit sooner or later. The only way you can avoid such a clash with your partner is by sticking to your chores and following a routine.
2. Planning a vacation
This could turn ugly if you are not open to what your partner has to say. Whether you go for a beach trip or a mountain trek, make sure you give your partner enough space so that you don’t end up having arguments instead of a happy holiday. Understanding each other prioritize and taking turns in choosing the destination helps.
3. “Me time”
Okay, this is something you need to navigate very carefully or you can land up having a major fight with your spouse. When you are planning something with your friends make sure you tell your partner about it in a proper manner. Similarly, do not object when your partner looks forward to spending some time with his/her friends.
4. TV Space
This might seem like a petty thing to bring up, but you would be surprised to learn that many marital fights crop up because one partner hogged all the TV time. Make sure you give your other half a chance to watch his/her favorite shows also.
