Ladies, What Your Reoccurring Fights Says About Your Relationship

Sometimes the things you argue about in your relationship, are just as important as the things you agree on. If you have a certain hot button issue in your relationship that you just can’t get past, that might be telling about the relationship itself. Even these triggers may be causing you to feel like you are stuck in a rut, you and your partner may just need some extra help in order to work it out.

Below are two common arguments that have the ability to plague a relationship, along with some advice on how to leave these disagreements in the past. 

Mommy Issues

It’s not just a theme that is entertaining in sitcoms and romantic comedies, having disagreements with your mother-in-law (or soon to be mother-in-law) is an issue that has the potential to destroy a relationship. Dating a momma’s boy can maybe be endearing at first, but can quickly become maddening when you soon realize she is the other woman in his life, and most of the time she is the priority. As important as it is to respect the mother/son bond, there needs to be a boundary that he draws. If he lets his mother run all over your relationship then you will quickly become resentful, which is a hard feeling to shake. In order to end this argument, have an honest conversation about your feelings and emphasize the need for him to take back his power from his mom, even if that means disagreeing with her. 

Gender Roles 

It is easy to fall into the pattern where you are doing all the cooking, cleaning and housework, usually on top of working your own 9-5, while he gets to just come home and relax after a day’s work. You have told him time and time again that he needs to pull his weight in terms of domesticity, however it just doesn’t seem to be resonating. More likely than not, your man grew up in a home with typical 1950s gender roles in place, causing him to just naturally think that is they way it should be. Instead of fulfilling his gender biases by nagging him, let him know that it actually hurts your feelings that he isn’t helping out around the house and reiterate how important it is to you that there is equality in the home.
