I have been dating a man for a little over a year now. The committed relationship part began about 9 months ago, and it has been the most rewarding and healthy one I've ever experienced (not that I have a whole lot of experience).
I know how most relationships start out in romance and attraction until both sides get comfy, and then the real personalities come out. With so many aspects of the human mind, it seems there's no way to avoid a difference in beliefs or a clash in communication. But having known this person for three years, knowing him even better for one year, and knowing him intimately for 9 months, you would think we'd have at least one fight. Heck, I usually get sick of them by the 6th month!
There's only been one time where we both felt bad, but the issue was resolved within the hour it was brought up, and that was the end of it.
It seems as though we just generally appreciate each other and communicate so that nothing escalates to the point of a fight. Though I'm not complaining--by any means whatsoever--I wonder...how normal is this?
The question I suppose I'm trying to ask is, isn't it normal for people to have arguments in a relationship? And how often are fights considered 'normal?'
Is it, by any stretch of the imagination, unhealthy to never fight?
