Relationships would not be normal if there wasn’t a little bit of arguing in them. When you think about arguments in a relationship, a few ideas may come to mind. Some of these arguments have valid reasons behind them such as cheating or lack of communication. There are also things like money and kids that are the cause of arguments. Those disputes are what makes a relationship function. There will always be ups and downs in relationships. Sometimes though, the arguments are just petty and downright silly. These are a few examples of the petty arguments couples have.
Whether you are male or female, everyone has a sexual past. When you begin a new relationship, who you slept with in the past should not matter to your partner. When this becomes an issue and provokes an argument, it is time to take a step back. Why does your partner care who you slept with? This is pretty silly to argue over, especially because you cannot change your past. You will either have to listen to your partner gripe about it, or remove yourself from the relationship. Most of the time, if your partner is upset about this, he/she will not let it go.
Attending Family Events
Going into a relationship, you both have to realize you each have families. You or your partner should not try to forces one another into going to an event that they do not want to attend. This is especially important to consider with holiday gatherings. You both should be where you want to be. Arguing over where to go and trying to guilt the other into going with you is crazy. You are both separate people and should make your own decisions accordingly.
When Your Partner Is Checking Someone Else Out
Jealousy is something that is not easily overcome. If you are insecure, this will be a fight you have often. Reality is, men and women alike will look at members of the opposite sex. Just because they are looking does not mean they are interested in pursuing anything with the other person, it merely means they find him/her attractive. If you can see this fight becoming common in your relationship, you should spend some time working on your insecurities before trying to continue dating.
Cleaning Up After Oneself
This has to be one of the more common arguments. Consider this – if you know your partner is not going to clean up after himself/herself, what is the use in arguing over it? If you can tolerate the aspect of picking up after someone else then there should not be an issue. When it does become an issue, you have to make a decision to stay or go. More than likely, he/she will not change and you will continue cleaning up after them. There is only wasted breath in arguing over something like this.
Reality is, your partner has had these friends before you and he will have them after you. The best course of action here is either avoid these friends or suck it up and deal with them if you want to be with your partner. Fighting over friends is not only petty but it also puts a strain on your relationship. If you aren’t willing to at least try to like your partner’s friends, the relationship is already doomed before it got started.
