How Married Couples Vs. Single People Fight — VIDEO
There's a difference between how married and single people fight, and a new Buzzfeed Yellow video provides a little lighthearted insight. Of course, everyone has their own unique fighting style (passive aggressive! aggressive aggressive! gaslighting!) but, stakes are much higher when you've, say, had an expensive party to celebrate your union in front of friends and family, changed your last name, or signed a legally binding document that will cost hella cash to get out of.
Regardless of whether you're married or single or in a LTR, fighting shouldn't be seen as awful as some folks seem to think it is. Conflict in a relationship is often just a passionate expression of divergent expectations two people bring to a situation. You don't have to be that couple who never shares a harsh word, but instead can learn productive ways to fight that produce fruitful outcomes or positive changes in your relationship.
