Do you argue a lot with your partner and start losing faith in your relationship? Don’t, because new studies show that arguing strengthens the bond between you and your lover.
If you argue, it means you know your lover well enough and are brave to voice your opinions. It shows the understanding between you two.
Psychologists have carried out tests and have concluded that couples which argue, have a stronger relationship than others.
Couples who argue, stay together.
Studies have shown many reasons why arguing strengthens a relationship. The most important one being that they arrest an issue before it gets worse.
An argument a week, keeps communication on fleek.
44 out of 100 married couples seem to believe in this. According to them, the importance of argument is that they can voice their needs. To explain and get to know what they truly want.
Let’s argue, not give up.
Arguments happen because of differences. Couples who want to overcome those differences instead of giving up on the relationship are truly committed.
Arguments show interest.
When couples acknowledge the matter by fighting, not ignoring, it means that they’re still interested in each other. They want to work things out.
No argument is a negative sign.
Feeling like you’re unable to speak up and fight for yourself, might suggest that you’re in an abusive relationship.
Fight, don’t resent.
When you readily approach problems in your relationship, you avoid resentment. No pending problems, no resentment!
Good and Bad fights.
The result of a good fight is constructive, better understanding and a stronger bond. But a bad fight results in ignoring the problem and therefore, resentment.
Fights do get ugly.
Too much of bad fighting can often lead to a breakup even though frequent fighting is good.
Arguing adds spice to your relationship if done right.
Ground rules of fighting.
Psychologists say, fight, but fight fair. The most important rule? To acknowledge the current problem. Keep the past in the past.
Respecting is important.
If you don’t respect your partner, no relationship will remain.
A sorry won’t hurt.
If you’ve made a mistake or said something bad, apologize. It doesn’t mean you’re weak, it means you have respect for your partner.
Don’t just bring in other people.
The problem is about the two of you, so don’t make other people a part of it. Comparing your partner to someone else is another bad thing.
Don’t say something you shouldn’t.
Just because you’re fighting doesn’t mean you should say whatever you want to. So, don’t say things your partner doesn’t deserve a hearing.
