Fighting too muchVisitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Male
me and my gf have been with each other for 9 months and we love each other to death and it seems like evry couple in my family meet at 16 and say with each other and end up getting popping the question and we both are 16. but me and my gf fight every day or every other day but not nothing big to cause us to break up but we have had a few bad ons and split up but that only lasted for a day and we are still holden strong but what should i do about the fighting or is it normal in couples
Fighting every other day is not normal and certainly not desirable.
You two need to agree that you want to reduce the fighting to about once every two weeks. Once you agree to this you both need to be keenly aware of when a fight is starting and the first one to notice should gently say that they don't want to fight right now.
If it is an issue that can't wait, then each of you take a turn saying what you want to say and the other one has to listen without interrupting no matter what. Then it is the other person's turn to talk without interruption.
This approach should result in reduced fighting. Let's Hope!
