"No name-calling, under any circumstances."

Getting into unnecessary fights with your boyfriend or girlfriend is always discouraged. However, there is no denying that fights are inevitable in any relationship and that even the best kinds of couples have occasional arguments. The trick is in ensuring that any arguments or fights you have together are ones that are healthy and not damaging to the relationship. Essentially, the outcome and value of an argument is dependent on the people who are having it. Simple feuds and fights have the potential to unravel into very heated, emotional, and deep battles. That’s why it is always important to maintain a level head whenever you are currently in a fight with your partner.

Always remember that all couples will fight at some point. Whether frequently or rarely, the fights will come; and it’s how couples react to these fights that determine whether a relationship is going to last or not.

1. Keep things clean and classy.

Always make sure to never go overboard in your arguments. Keep things classy and disagree with civility. There is absolutely no need for volatile and disruptive attitudes when you are caught in a heated fight. If you want your relationship to survive, you have to maintain your manners and keep a level head at all moments. In other words, no cheap shorts and dirty tricks.

2. No name-calling under any circumstances.

In connection with the previous item, calling each other names is a big no-no. Remember that any word you utter in these times of turmoil can and will be used against you in the future should your relationship manage to survive this ordeal. Don’t result to stupid grade-school teasing and name-calling. It’s beneath you. If you are both mature enough to be in a relationship, then you are mature enough to not have childish fights.

3. Don’t bring up any other points of argument.

Don’t you dare bring up that time she forgot to turn the stove off. This is not the appropriate moment to remind him of when he scratched the brand new car while parking. Now is not the time to bring up past arguments. Keep those arguments in their place in time and just move on.
