How Each Zodiac Sign Deals With Relationship Drama

Relationships are hard. Try as we might to live a drama-free life, sometimes even the healthiest of relationships face their share of challenges.

Whether you’re 10 years in or just getting to know each other, life has a way of putting up obstacles in every relationship. When conflict arises with your partner, it’s easy for things to get blown a little out of proportion, but it's harder to come back from this. 

From tackling arguments head-on to retreating into themselves, each zodiac sign has their own unique method of how to deal with relationship drama.

That’s because our personalities and behavior have a lot to with astrology.

Drama follows some signs, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be resolved. When trying to overcome some relationship drama with your partner, it could help to know their sign and understand why they act the way they do.

Of course, no one should blame their problematic behavior completely on their zodiac sign, but it doesn’t hurt to have an extra guide when trying to figure each other out!
