When you're in a relationship with another person other than yourself (those still count here), there are bound to be disagreements.
In fact, it is during those heated moments when we truly get to learn who the other person is, which ultimately makes you stronger as a couple.
Sometimes arguing with your significant other can even be fun and playful. It's not about winning; it's just about pushing the other person's buttons for a little extra attention. Now we know what you were deprived of as a child.
Here are the 15 silly fights couples have that make them stronger:
1. The “You Turn Out the Light” Fight
Who wants to get out of bed when there's someone else lying naked in it? Yeah, nice excuse for being too lazy to get out of bed and shut off the lights.
The rivalry has gone so far as to challenge the other person to withstand sleeping with the lights on until one of you gives in. You're not flicking the switch without a fight.
...But seriously, it's your turn.
2. The “Who Orders the Menu Item That You Both Want” Fight
So, who's going to get the better ice cream cone flavor? You can't both order the same thing! Winning in this fight is defined as ordering the undesirable dish and liking it better than the one you two originally fought over.
Reserve the spoon-feeding for when you have some private time later.
3. The “I-Think-You-Should-Do-This-But-I-Don't-Want-To” Fight
"I think you should get that checked out.”
"I hate doctors. Pass.”
"It looks really bad. Please go. I'll go with you.”
"Stop telling me what to do!”
"You know I'm right.”
4. The “You Are Gross” Fight
Also known as the “Please Don't Suffocate Me With Your Farts In Bed” fight, and also includes things like clipping your toes on the furry rug and picking your nose in the kitchen.
Just humor us and not be disgusting for, like, two minutes. We promise it's worse for us than it is for you.
5. The “I Don't Want To Fight About This” Fight
It's the fight that makes you go,"Wait, why are we fighting about this?” Like when you mutually don't want to attend a friend's party, but you both aren't saying it outright.
The two of you eventually stop this fake relationship dramz and realize you're both on the same team.
6. The “Where Did You Misplace My Stuff?” Fight
"Where did you put my sh*t? You are always moving my things!”
"Oh, here it is. In my back pocket. I love you.”
7. The “Who Gets To Pay” Fight
This is the silliest of fights. You both want to treat the other to a movie ticket. Solution? By it for each other and move on. You're making single, sad bitches on their way to see “The Best of Me” gag in line.
8. The “You Have Too Much Crap” Fight
You're already hogging the minimal closet space with bandage dresses of yore and old Halloween costumes.
You have to downsize both physically and mentally in order to make room for another person. Put your sh*t away. This includes your never-worn cheap black blazer.
9. The “Tell Me What You Want” Fight
"Do you want Italian or Chinese for dinner?”
"I want what you want.”
"I don't care what we do.”
"Just tell me what it is that you want.”
"I'm happy doing whatever.”
"This is so frustrating!”
"What is going on right now?'
"Let's just get sushi.”
Kiss and make up (sex).
10. The “What Are We Watching Tonight?” Fight
Your debate over the “Real Housewives” and Adult Swim is at least more interesting than the Steelers game. How about settling on a nice movie, like “The Fault in Our Stars”? It's about, er, fighter pilots.
11. The “You're Distracting Me Too Much With Your Sexiness” Fight
We need to stop being so in love with each other, gosh!
(Brb. I'm wincing so hard I can't see to type.)
12. The “You're Coming to My Family Dinner” Fight
We don't want to go just as much as you don't want to accompany us. But like you said the time you had us shave your back with a switchblade, “We're in this together.”
13. The “Let's Stay In Versus Go Out” Fight
"Fine, I'll just go to the party on my own.” (Puts on tight jeans and crop top.) "Okay, I'm coming.
14. The “We're Sleeping Late” Fight
Don't even think about touching the alarm. There are many things you'll sacrifice for your beloved -- sleep isn't one of them.
15. The “Play with Meeee, Love Meeee” Fight
A little attention goes a long way. Put down the phone. Put the computer away. And focus on the glorious person in front of you who wants nothing more than to be present in your eyes. That is worth fighting for.
