Having a fight with your boyfriend is a crucial part of your relationship because it gives you the opportunity to express how passionate you are in making the other person understand your opinion. Provided that both of you will not end up as murder victims, fights and arguments are necessary for your relationship because they give it a much-needed zest and prevent it from veering into total boredom. Moreover, it allows you to see how your partner handles an extremely difficult and emotional situation.
For the most part, fights are good for relationships since they make any relationship interesting. Plus, it is natural for lovers to argue because it is but normal for two people to not agree on some matters from time to time. However, when arguments get out of hand, these fights and debates can leave both of you and your boyfriend emotionally and mentally drained.
