10 Common Couple Fights and What They’re Really About

Arguing in a relationship is pretty common but, if you’re fighting every day, you might not be in the right relationship. But some traditionally “dumb” fights can actually lead to break-ups and heartbreaks.

Keep reading for a list of 10 common couple fights and what they’re really about. This will help you handle the problem as a couple instead of splitting over something that is, frankly, stupid!

1: ONE OF YOU DIDN’T CALL WHEN YOU WERE RUNNING LATE

Maybe one of your meetings ran late, or one of you had to make a stop at the store. Either way, your partner seems irked for your constant disregard for time. Your partner is upset because time and schedules don’t really matter to one of you while they are really important to the other.

Also, if they don’t hear from you when you would normally call, they may think something has happened to you.

2: ONE OF YOU IS ELECTRONICS OBSESSED

One of you is always on their phone or panics when they don’t have a charge on their laptop. This fight is usually about a lack of quality time or a difference in the importance one of your places on electronics and their availability.

3: YOU WANT TO DO DIFFERENT THINGS

One of you may feel like sleeping in while the other wants to wake up and conquer the day. One of you may also fall asleep during movie night. Either way, you’re both annoyed. This fight is usually about lifestyle. It’s OK to do some things alone. Make small changes so you’re both happy!

4: ONE OF YOU GETS UPSET WHEN THEY HAVE TO GO TO AFTER-HOURS ACTIVITIES

Either dinner with the boss, your sister’s wedding, or some other activity. If your partner seems upset about going to an after-hours social event, the likely cause of the fight is a form of social anxiety.

5: COMPLIMENTS HAVE LOST THEIR SINCERITY

If you ask if you look OK and your partner seems less than enthused with a seemingly ingenuine compliment, there’s a reason! The most common reason is that you are usually insecure and haven’t taken compliments well in the past.

6: ONE OF YOU WANTS ATTENTION WHEN THE OTHER IS BUSY

It seems like, just when you find yourself busy, your partner wants to spend time with you and sometimes annoy you! This is usually because you two aren’t getting enough quality time and your partner feels you’re prioritizing something else over them.

7: ONE OF YOU FREAK OUT WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE OTHER COUPLES TO HANG WITH

Being in a relationship is easy when you have friends to hang with, but it can be hard to hang out with non-couples. Really, you just want to have fun and don’t want things to get boring!

8: ONE OF YOU THINKS THE OTHER IS TOO LOUD IN PUBLIC PLACES

If one of you gets uncomfortable talking about personal things in public, the fight is really about privacy. To solve this, just choose to keep private matters between the two of you!

9: EITHER OF YOU LEAVE DIRTY CLOTHES ON THE FLOOR INSTEAD OF IN THE BASKET

This is frustrating, but it’s all about freedom of choice. One of you is feeling a bit rebellious, and this is how you act out!

10: ONE OF YOU SEEMS TO BE THE ONLY ONE CLEANING

This fight is really about priorities. It doesn’t take too much time to clean the kitchen after cooking. It might help to divide the chore and have one person responsible for the same chore every day or week.
