Both the way you argue and the way you make up can show what kind of couple you REALLY are at the heart of your relationship. Make-up sex is the best way to remind each other why you’re together.

Make-up sex is a biological necessity since fighting activates your fear of the relationship ending and makes you want to keep everything in tact. Why not prove to each other it’s very much still on?

Fighting becomes actually WORTH IT... just for the sex!
