How can you handle if you and your partner argue almost every? Is it normal? What are your opinions about this?

If the constant arguing gets in the way to a happy and healthy relationship, then I consider it as not normal. The partners should examine why they are always arguing, and for how long will they be able to sustain their relationship. Partners should not only love each other, but should also respect and trust each other. If it gets to a point where the "boat sails in very rough seas" is it not that sooner or later, it will sink amidst the storm? It is also likened to a relationship...there should be give and take...a constant reminder not only to talk, but also to listen. Arguments ensue especially if both sides do not listen anymore...they would rather talk and talk with the goal of winning. In the end, both partners become bitter, hurt and consequently the break up.

yeah you're right relationship should have a give and take. when one cannot breathe. the other one should give time and space to decide.

No not at all constant arguing is not going to better your relationship at all rather this is just an example of your understanding crisis in your relationship. so try to avoid this as much as possible.

No I don't think that's normal. Of course you can get into a fight every now and then but if it get all the time every day then it not normal, and maybe time to end things?

At the start of the relationship, we used to argue a lot, so much so, that friends said that we r not compatible with each other.we did not believe them, n now its two years, n then still we argue, but not that much, n we have grown in our relationship. Some of the most horrible things happened to our relationship, n to us as welll,but we were meant to b together....We love each other even more everyday!!!Touch woood!!!!

Well I have to say that it better be normal, or my boyfriend and I could be in some trouble! I've been with my boyfriend for 2.5 years and we do tend to argue about something atleast once per day. I think it's normal as long as you argue fairly and people's feelings aren't hurt in the end.

I dont have a partner yet........ Talking of argument.........i dont feel daily argument is normal..........if it happens sometimes and does not leads to quarrel between the two...........its fine......but if it becomes a daily routine..........one of you need to change yourself.......trying handle the situation better by keeping quiet at times to avoid quarrels.

Hi schersey, for me, constant arguing is unhealthy and not normal for a relationship. the tendency is you will loose respect to your partner. it is non-sense to think that even small things to be decided upon must be argued about. for me, if that's the case, then, you are not human, because human have emotions... you know that by yelling at your partner, your hurt his/her feeling and if the case worsen, it will lead to some emotional and mentality illness.

Constant arguing can affect the relatioship so much,each one will loose respect to each other.Coz it can be a habit forming in your daily lives even little things can cause argument will not good in any relationship and may cause broken in to your relationship.So as soon as posibble one must give way so the argument will fix soon.
