It's completely normal to argue with your partner. We all have differences, but not seeing eye to eye with your betrothed can seem a big pill to swallow. Arguing is not however a reason to worry; opposing opinions can spark a debate and isn't life more fun when it's a challenge? I see an argument as a good way of clearing the air: you need to say something and once aired you move past it and a relationship can become stronger. Don't fret about arguments, they're healthy.
It's normal to have discussions at least. Two people living together are going to have the odd disagreemen and communicating about it is a good thing. If you're having really nasty arguments on a regular basis then there might be a problem.
I try to be flexible, but I suppose we all have lines we won't cross.
My first husband was extremely Passive Aggressive.So after 11 years with him....that did my head in.
Sadly found love again....to a man who showed me his true anger the day after we married!!! So I have to say, it may be normal but I want no part of a life with anyone.Give me peace and quite any time.....please.
Jonaj, you sound like me -I was told I was "picking" the wrong guys!
It IS peaceful alone, but for me, gets a bit boring at times, or is it lonely, despite being very happy with my own company.
It is a relief not to be scared of an angry person, and being able to play games on the computer without being told I should be working around the house!
Yep! I'm with you.Listen have you got a craft, or hobby?
There are a few classy ones on You Tube, and not much out lay for money.
I'm doing 'steampunking' on note books...and they are very nice.Have a look :)
I do spinning and knitting, and am currently between volunteering jobs. Actually I have not spun or knitted for ages as am so addicted to stupid i pad games!
I didnt quite understand what your hobby was about! will check it out.
I have learned to be more laid back. Things that use to irritate me before, don't bother me so much these days. My husband and I use to argue like cats and dogs, but we have come a long way. I think it's part of a normal and healthy relationship to argue - but 'clean' arguments only. When spite or vindictiveness creeps in, trouble lurks around the corner.
My husband and I argue all the time. It's good for the kids to see that you can have different opinions but still talk after the arguing has finished and laugh about it. No sulking in our house only from the kids.
I think disagreements are perfectly normal, you're taking two individuals and asking them to live together and share everything, there are going to be disagreements. If they're all the time and making life miserable, then I'd look at whether the relationship was worth it, but if it's just silly things like not liking the way someone puts the toilet paper into the holder and nobody gets upset, then it's fine.
I love my partner madly. I think he's pretty keen on me. We would have at least one argument every day. We have been married for 44 years.
My girlfriend of 50 years says she has never had a real argument with her husband of 43 years, she simply agrees with everything he says. My husband said that he couldn't remain married to such a "yes" woman. He needs to argue with someone who has their own ideas and at the very least their own personality.
What do you think.
Definitely. What a boring world if we all agreed. My late husband and I both had fiery natures and could set each other off quite easily. We used to have some humdinger of arguments. However, we both shared the same sense of the ridiculous in our humour and this offset any disagreements we had.
