3. Learning to Fight Fair

It goes without saying that most people will have a spat or two with their partner at some point, especially if you’ve been together for a long time. When two people are passionate – or stubborn – it may be hard to get your point across or to listen to what the other person has to say. Discussing your disagreements with a therapist may help you both control an argument so that it doesn’t escalate too far. A counselor could also offer tools on how to fight fair, which means learning a better way to communicate so that one isn’t talking over the other and both parties feel like they’re being heard and both parties feel validated.
