With divorce rates set to hit a record high this year, 'betterdatethannever' explains how to avoid arguing with your partner. Most people experiencing marital difficulties blame financial reasons for their fights. The easiest way to avoid conflict with your partner is to make sure you communicate and share your problems. Holding things deep inside makes them get worse and worse till they explode into one huge argument. Allow your partner to speak their mind and express things they do not like without holding it against them or chewing them out. You can also put yourself in their shoes to try and see things from their point of view.
