Disagreements and arguments certainly happen in relationships — arguing about something doesn't necessarily mean that there's something terribly wrong. That being said, there are some do's and don't's that'll help you and your partner fight more fairly, rather than being at complete and utter odds. But in some cases, the way that the two of you fight might actually indicate that there's something wrong in your relationship. If you and your partner argue these seven types of ways, you're just not meant to be together, even if you thought that you were.
"Obviously, no one is perfect, and we all have bad days where we argue and/or handle difficult feelings and situations in not so great ways," Julie Williamson, LPC, NCC, RPT, a therapist at Abundant Life Counseling St. Louis, tells Romper by email. "For that reason, it's important to practice grace and forgiveness in our relationships. However, if you notice a pattern of negative behavior, or if you've spoken with your partner about how their behavior makes you feel, and the partner is unwilling to change or seek support in changing, chances are high that they are not going to change by you 'waiting it out' or actively trying to change their behavior."
Some types of arguing just really might mean that you aren't the right people for each other. If you notice these sorts of things in your own relationship, reflecting on things and potentially speaking with your partner or a therapist, might help you sort out whether things can be changed or repaired or not.
