When you’re in a serious, long-term relationship, whether or not you are married, it can be difficult to combine your life with someone else’s. When you’re single, you have a certain way of doing things, and when your way of living doesn’t completely match with your significant other’s, this can create conflict, and you may find that the two of you fight about the littlest things. While arguing is a normal part of a healthy relationship, too much fighting can cause tension. In our previous post, we talked about how money and cleaning are two common things that couples fight about. In part two of this series, we will provide you with a few more topics that you and your significant other might fight about regularly.

Believe it or not, sex is one of the most common things that couples will argue about. Sex can be a tricky topic to try and talk through, as saying the wrong thing can make you or your loved one feel self-conscious about what happens in the bedroom. Couples may fight about sex for a variety of reasons, but for the most part, it usually comes down to the fact that one partner wants to have sex more or less than the other.

If you’re having problems in the bedroom with your significant other, Long Island Counseling can provide you with the advice and counseling that you need. We offer sex therapy that will help you find confidence and passion in your relationship. Browse our website to learn more and give us a call today!

Quality Time

Balancing your time at work and at home can be a struggle, and when you add in a marriage or a serious relationship, it can be even more difficult to find time to do it all. For this reason, couples often fight about the quality time that they spend with each other. Quality time is an important part of any relationship, as it helps to strengthen your bond. That being said, if you or your partner works all of the time, or seems to prioritize their job over their relationship, it can lead to a serious conflict.


Little bundles of joy are not so joyful when they are the source of an argument. Having kids (or not having kids) is a big conversation that you need to have before you get married. For some, kids are an important step in your marriage, whereas for others, children are a financial burden. As you can probably imagine, this can cause tension and lead to a fight if couples disagree on whether or not to procreate. On the other hand, couples may also feel stress in the timing of when to have kids, leading to an entirely different argument.
