Not really, although we don't fight often really. When we do, it's over little things anyway, so they're pretty easy to resolve. In previous relationships fights tended to be about the same thing over and over again, though, and it drove me off the wall! The worst type of fights are the ones where no matter what you say, your words get changed around! I used to hate that! And it happened often...
We are often guilty of this. He doesn't like to resolve anything, he just wants to pretend stuff didn't happen and move on. Well, when the same thing that went unresolved happens again, obvious it's going to cause yet another issue. Tends to be very frustrating.
We had the same old fights the first 10 years of our marriage. We didn't fight often, but when we did they were predictable. Then we got smart and learned how to resolve the big issues. Life's much better now.
We fight over the same old issues for many months to a couple of years. Once the attacker decides to overcome the issue and get our relationship back--we usually let it drop. We do go in stages, though. Depends on the issue.
Do you find that you and your partner continually fight over the same things? I find that often times when we fight they are of a similar topic. Anybody else find this?
Yes but it is pretty easy to be aware of which fights are going to occur again and you have to decide whether you care enough to fight that battle. Ultimately the only way that battle ends is one person has to decide that unless the issue is resolved the relationship cant continue, at which point someone has a choice to make.
