Do You and Your Partner Fight Fair?

Posted by   + Show Post

There are two layers to every fight you have with your partner: the subject and the emotion underneath it. Sex and Relationship Expert Ian Kerner is here to help you understand how you fight AND how your partner fights.

Sometimes we can be nasty to each other, but we've been together for 14 years almost so we know how to push each others buttons. One of us will eventually cave, apologize and then we talk about the issue we're having with each other.

My DH and I don't fight fair and we really need to work on that and our communication.

I'd say we do.

We don't fight often. Neither one of us is very confrontational, and most of the time we agree. When we do fight, we both have to be careful of our words, for sure.

For the most part. We dont bring up past/other issues, or name call, or hit, or berate. I wouldnt say we are very GOOD at fighting--we could do much better at communicating--but we don't do most of the huge "donts" you are supposed to avoid.

No we do not fight if we disagree we will talk about it

Oh not as much as we did. Life is way too short to care that much:)

We try to fight fair. It doesn't always happen but we always make the effort and apologize if things go to far

We don't fight. Haven't for years anyway.

Over the years we learned to just talk about things.
