All couples have arguments and in some relationships it is healthy and a way to resolve conflict. The problems arise when your fights become unhealthy and are a sign that all is not well in love land. The trouble is it’s often very difficult to distinguish between healthy and unhealthy fights: some help you clarify and heal, others are frequent, trivial and damaging. Here are some ways to avoid your arguments being unhealthy to your relationship:
1. Listen to Each Other
One of the ways to avoid unhealthy arguments is to really listen to what your partner is saying rather than putting on the invisible headphones and refusing to hear their side. If you go in to an argument not willing to actually talk, instead just wanting to shout your opinions across and get them off your chest, then no middle ground is ever going to be found and the argument will continue to rage on until a breaking point comes.
