I hate to be the one to have to tell you this, but if you go on a trip with your significant other, you're probably going to get into an argument at some point. Largely, my husband and I travel well together. But he's a planner who thrives on following itineraries, while I'm more into spontaneity and daily two-hour naps. We do a lot of traveling, and at least once a trip, we butt heads. It's natural, and it's pretty much inevitable. Rather than hoping you won't fight, it's better to know how to solve common vacation fights with your partner so that if they do happen, you know how to deal.
I spoke to online dating coach Andi Forness, and she believes the best way to avoid vacation conflict with an SO is to find middle ground. That being said, Forness also points out that you and your partner should never be afraid to do your own thing either, because you two are not always going to want the same thing. Here are some common vacation conundrums you might encounter with a partner, as well as some strategies for dealing with them without major fallout. Vacation is about relaxing, after all, and there's nothing relaxing about fighting with an SO.
