The Committed Zodiac Signs Who Fight For Love Vs. Those Who Lose Interest When The Relationship Has Problems

When is the right time to fight for your relationship and when is the right time to give up and move on? Is there just a thing as a "right time" or should you always be ready to fight for your partner, no matter what situation you're in?

Love is hard, that's for sure. Relationships are not always just about how you feel during the honeymoon phase, either. When you're in a relationship with someone, you need to remind yourself that things will be hard at times.

There will most definitely be times when you can't really stand each other and maybe even times when you wish you HAD given up and moved on long ago. But that's sometimes a good thing.

If your relationship is nothing but sunshine and butterflies, you might be sweeping some of the biggest problems under the rug instead of confronting them. A healthy relationship is one that is built on a foundation of trust, communication, and understanding.

If you can't have all three of those things, then you probably do want to consider moving on. That said, if your relationship is nothing BUT fighting, that's not a good sign, either.

Sure, there will be times when you have to decide if you want to fight for yourself or the relationship, but when you feel like you're constantly at war with your partner, there are probably more problems under the surface that you're not acknowledging.

Each horoscope sign has a side they would take if they were in this position.

When it comes to deciding whether or not to fight for the relationship – tooth, and nail – so that they don't lose the person they love, and giving up and moving on, each zodiac sign would do something differently.

Of course, you can never really know what each zodiac sign will do until they are actually in that position to decide, but it's easy to know from a hypothetical standpoint what they would choose.

And honestly, neither choice is the right answer – just like neither choice is the wrong one, either.

It all depends on what feels right to you. You can't expect yourself to fight for your relationship if your partner wouldn't do the same, right? And you can't expect to just end things when you know that there could be something amazing waiting for you on the other side with your partner.

You just never know! So, even while you might be able to convince yourself that you're on one side of the spectrum or another, it's all about how it feels in the moment. Sometimes, something just feels right once you're experiencing it.

And if you don't fight for this relationship, maybe it's not meant to be. Maybe there's another relationship out there that makes you say that yes, you would fight for the relationship and your partner without a moment's hesitation.

Giving up doesn't always mean failure; sometimes, it means protecting your heart. And that's on you to decide what's right for your heart. Here are the zodiac signs who will fight for their relationship vs. the ones who give up and move on too quickly, according to astrology.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, when you commit to a relationship, you commit to it for life. There's none of this second-guessing or threatening your partner that you're going to leave. If you're really that unhappy, you WILL leave – you don't need to threaten it.

But you also trust your choices. When you find someone you really love, you will do everything you possibly can to fight for the relationship. You never give up in any other part of your life, so why is your relationship any different? Through thick or thin, you are there for your partner.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Love is not something you take lightly, Taurus. You're not about to throw away a whole relationship just because you have an argument or find yourself in a rough patch. Other people might think it silly but you're definitely a "when you know, you know" kind of person.

When you first start dating someone, you just know that they're the right person for you. So, that's why you do everything in your power to hold onto the relationship. There will always be lows with the highs, but you will fight for every moment, not just the good ones.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces, there really is something to say for your intuitive nature. You tend to use your gut to make the bulk of your decisions in life, including ones in your relationship. When something feels wrong, you tap out, but when something feels right, you dive into it with both feet.

You had a gut feeling about your relationship being worth it at some point, and that is what has ultimately helped you stay in the relationship through all the ups and downs. You're also a die-hard romantic, which means you always hope love will work out, which is why you fight for it.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, you're a very stubborn person. When you make a decision, that's it – nothing and no one can change your mind. So, if you make a decision to commit to someone, you stick it out to the very end. If you need to fight, you'll fight, but you'll never give up.

You're also a very loyal person, so just because there are times when you will have to fight for your relationship, you know that the only thing that matters is your partner. Everything else in the world could be falling apart, but when you fight, it's for them, not anything else.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

There are times when you have difficulty opening up and showing your partner the real you, the most vulnerable side of you, but when it comes to love, nothing can stand in the way of you sharing your entire being with this one person. Even though love is hard, you always fight for it.

But while there are times when love IS hard, you don't like giving up on someone you've put stock into. You're a ride-or-die partner that knows that beneath all the emotions and outside factors that can put stress on the relationship, there is real love that deserves a fight underneath.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, you make every decision based on what your heart AND your mind feel. If it feels right to your heart only, you might be blinding yourself to the truth. If it feels right to your brain only, there's probably no passion to it. You need both working in harmony to know something is right.

You will fight for your relationship if your heart and your brain are on the same side. If you love your partner with all your heart, but in your mind, you know the facts will disagree, then it might be time to move on. You need that balance or else your relationship will never survive.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

There's no denying it, Leo – you're a hot commodity. Everyone wants a piece of you, and while that can be a big turn-on for you, you also love being someone's one and only. You will absolutely fight for your relationship, like a lion fights for its pride, if it makes sense to.

Of course, your judgment can be clouded by all the other potential partners out there, but you do try to stay faithful. Even if you are faithful. anything past the honeymoon phase can make you feel like the fight isn't worth it. It's up to you to make the right decision, then.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo, when you're in a relationship, you're all in. You don't date just for the fun of it; you date because you passionately love this person and want them in your life. So, yes, you will always fight for them, if the occasion arises – no question about it.

That said, you take the rest of your life outside of the relationship very seriously, too. When you commit to anything, you do it with your whole self. If you decide that a relationship isn't worth fighting for anymore, it's because you feel like you've lost a part of your identity in the process.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio, you're a very intense partner – when you're in a relationship, you want to connect with your other half body, mind, and soul. That said, you can also experience some jealousy for things that don't even concern you – like what other relationships look like, for example.

You flip-flop between wanting to fight for your relationship and just drop it while you still have dignity because there are times when you wish you were single again, even if you're happy in a relationship. Maybe it's a lack of trust or you're just bored, but there's no telling what you want.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius, the love you have for your relationship burns fast and bright, right at the beginning. When you first start dating someone, it feels like this is finally The One. But that spark can fizzle out very fast and then you're left with a feeling of regret and boredom.

You should know that relationships are not supposed to be on fire the entire time you're together, but you can't help but give up. You're also a very independent person, and giving up sometimes feels like the right thing to do, too. You're definitely quick to second-guess things.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You love being in relationships when it feels like you're dating your best friend, Aquarius, but you also love just being single. You're one of the most temperamental zodiac signs, which means that you're always happy about tour relationship one minute and down on it the next.

You tend to give up faster than you like to admit in a relationship because you always wonder what the other scenario would be if you were single. Because it's hard for you to commit and be happy about it, you decide to just move on until you figure it out.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini, you are the most indecisive zodiac sign of the bunch. One day, you're all over your partner, and the next, you wish you weren't even together. There's no telling how you'll feel about the relationship, so there's no telling if you'll ever fight for it.

You always change your mind about your relationship, and you always let your nerves win. Rather than just letting go and seeing where the relationship will take you, you give up and move on. You much prefer the honeymoon phase when things are fun before it gets too serious.
