Couples fight. It's a fact of nature. Whether you've been together for two months or two decades, the occasional tiff, argument, or all-out-blow-up is bound to happen from time to time. (Pro tip: couples who say they never fight are either lying or straight out of a romance novel). The good news is that fights can be used to strengthen your relationship instead of weaken it, as long as you learn how to "fight well" and handle the aftermath. Avoiding the worst things you can do after a fight with your partner is step one in fair fighting 101 and, although it's never easy, avoiding these things might help your fights occur less often and be less damaging for you both.
Don't get discouraged if you and your partner haven't mastered these post-fight tips just yet. Every relationship is different and grows at its own speed. Furthermore, each fight has it's own cause and needs to be handled in its own way. However, having a list of what not to do can be helpful for the next time you're in the throes of an argument and are hoping to recover sooner rather than later, whether it's your first fight or your fiftieth.
