The couples who last don’t do so because they never fight. All couples fight! But the ones who get past it, and manage to still laugh, love each other, cuddle and have sex as if those fights never happened do so because they handle their fights in the right way. When handled incorrectly, a quarrel can just set the tone for your relationship moving forward. Unhealthy fighting tactics make you and your partner a little more distant and a little less in love after each dispute. Just because a fight is over doesn’t mean it isn’t still in your systems, affecting the way you treat and feel about one another. And if it’s still in your systems, you can’t be happy. Here is how healthy versus unhealthy couples deal with these common relationship issues.

A sex deficit; the healthy way

All couples can become busy and just forget to make time for sex. Healthy couples focus on making each other feel desired and attractive when this happens. They come up with ways to have sex—even if that means popping into their partner’s office on a lunch break. If they have to, they schedule sex! It’s in the shared Google calendar.
