    Thank you Melina! Explosive fights usually end up with two people shouting things that they’ll soon end up regretting. It becomes more about winning the argument than reaching a healthy agreement. Some bickering and fights though as you say, can be healthy for some couples. xxx

    I think there’s honestly no right or wrong answer. My sister and her boyfriend almost never fight. If they don’t see eye to eye they communicate it calmly and find a way to move on in a healthy manner. Like you said, obviously we are all human, so there are things that frustrate the other. On the other hand, I think it’s okay if you bicker and fight with your partner, but those explosive fights aren’t necessarily the healthiest? I feel like you end up saying a lot of things you don’t mean, hurt each other’s feelings, and don’t really get any closer to understanding one another. Great post, it really made me consider if one way is better than the other! xxx
