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 10 hilarious fights couples have that make them stronger.
1. The music in the car
During the honeymoon period of your relationship, both of you got equal play with the iPod cord. Then you realized you were dating a ‘skipper’ who switches songs 30 seconds in, a musical ADD that just won’t quit and makes you want to put duct tape over the stereo dials. After a while, the battle of who gets to the chord first becomes so real that you have to download podcasts or turn on the radio just to have something ‘neutral.’
2.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.
3. The sides of the bed/ultimate sleeping position
We should all really dedicate an entire date in the initial stages of casual dating to cuddling. You think you love someone, and then you find out that they take the entire blanket and smother you with their bicep as you sleep. What do you do with two big spoons? “Okay, yeah that’s good. I’ll take that pillow. No, okay just don’t— NO YOU’RE BREATHING ON MY NECK! Are you sleeping? Babe?”
4. 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.”
5. The ‘Kanye West’ argument
I call this the ‘Kanye West’ argument because my ex and I literally broke up over an argument sparked by my support of Yeezy as a human being. Yup. Everyone has a band, show, person, whatever, that they know is kind of insufferable and lacks a defense for a lot of its awfulness, but you fight for them anyway. We couldn’t hack it, but healthy couples can argue over their particular excessive allegiances to things/people without breaking their own bond with each other.
6. 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.
7. The bad backseat boyfriend/girlfriend
“Can you take over the GPS?”
“Let me know when to turn”
*20 minutes pass*
“I think we missed the turn?”
“YOU WERE IN CHARGE OF THE NAVIGATION”
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 cuddle/tickle fight gone wrong
It all starts with a playful touch. It ends in a kind of crying-laughing torture that can only be stopped with verbal death threats.
10. 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).
11. 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.
12. 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.
