do you fight regurally?

im wondering if that is really a common thing. me and my husand dont fight , we did in the first year of our relationship during the adjustment to living together phase and thats it . its not that we are exactly alike. of course we have different opinions but we grew past that and we never fight.
and i see some moms talking about constant fighting or anger issues etc.
im wondering if fighting is really that common with marriages

  • I think it's normal to have arguments and fights, it's also normal not to.
    It depends on the people in the relationship really. If both people are passive then fighting probably isn't going to be a regular occurrence but if both people are stubborn, defensive and sensitive then fights are going to happen more often.

    My DH and I are equally stubborn so we get into our fair share of arguments but we still love each other.

    Different strokes for different folks. :)

  • My DH and I did in the first year or so of being married. It has been 7 years now and we might have a disagreement about something every few months, but I would not call it a fight-more a difference of opinions.

  • We have been together almost 19 years and we rarely fight. We are the complete opposite of each other but we work very well together. We dont agree on everything but we respect each others opinions and dont sweat the small stuff.

  • I think arguments and disagreement are normal and healthy in a relationship. SO and I have disagreements but in our 4 yr relationship i can honestly say we have only fought once! I don't think daily arguments are healthy,but i think they are normal for most couples.

  • bouncingI think arguments for some folks are like having love talk. Some just enjoy it and the make up sex is amazing!
