Relationships are never as simple as finding the one you love and staying with them forever. Once you find that person that you want think you want to spend the rest of your life with, you'll inevitably run into problems as the relationship goes on.
You're two different people trying to blend two lives together and that's not always easy. You're bound to find some differences that cause small fights and big blowout fights along the way.
There's typical fights that every single couple has or will experience at some point in their relationship because even though everyone is different, we all have the same issues in relationships.

The Ex Fight
We all have ex boyfriends and girlfriends and sometimes they leave our lives for good but sometimes they stick around if it ended amicably. Sometimes your boyfriend's ex will try to contact them via Facebook message, or yours will contact you and it will most likely result in a fight between you two.
Fear Of Losing Each Other
These fights are usually caused by a fear of losing the other person. When someone comes in that could threaten your happiness and your relationship, you're bound to get a little defensive. This comes out like you don't trust the person but really you just want to make sure they feel the same way as you do.

The Fight For No Reason
Most couples will have a fight over something completely insignificant at one point in their relationship. After a while you probably won't even remember what this fight was even about in the first place.
Frustration Over Other Things
Maybe you forgot the chicken in the oven and burnt it or you accidentally ordered onions on your pizza and your S/O hates onions. Whatever it is it was so insignificant but it caused a lot of frustration and you decided to take it out on your partner. They totally don't deserve it but sometimes it happens! I'm sure they'll do the same thing to you at some point also.

The Bro Time Fight
Yes, guys need their bro time just like you need your girls nights out (or in). Sometimes the need for bro time can actually cause fights in a relationship. You can get a little unreasonable about your guy wanting hang out with his friends but you should remember that spending time apart is good for a relationship.
Insecurity Of Losing Him
If you get into this fight with your boyfriend or S/O, you should definitely take a step back and think about why you're having this fight in the first place. Are you insecure or afraid that you might lose them deep down? Because you definitely can't tell your partner that they're not allowed to see their friends just like they can't tell you that. Spending all you free time together isn't really healthy anyways.

The High Expectations Fight
Expectations are a natural thing to have in any relationship. You might not even realize how high your expectations are or how much they matter to you until it comes up and causes a fight between you and your partner. The trick is to manage your expectations and communicate to make sure you're on the same page.
Why It Happens
You Have Your Own Vision For The Future
Everyone says that lowering your expectations is the best way to avoid getting hurt and let down. But that's not really the case in relationships. You have expectations because you have your ideal vision for what you want your own future to be and you expect your S/O to have the same one. But your S/O is not a mind reader so if you want to make some changes or take a step forward you need to talk to them about it first.

The Family Fight
This is a super common fight that every couple will have after they've passed the 'meet the family' step. This fight could take some many different forms because every family is so different has their own weird and crazy problems.
Dealing With Someone Else's Family Drama Is Not Easy
Once you're introduced to your boyfriend's family and their introduced to yours, you're immediately adopted into their family drama. This can cause all kinds of problems in a relationship and that's just how it is. It's just another obstacle that you both need to get past to become closer. But just remember that everyone deals with these problems and you can't get everyone to love and accept you right away.

The Fight About Chores
If you're living with your S/O, you're bound to fight about doing the chores. Like who's going to take the garbage out in the morning, if they put the dishes the wrong direction in the dishwasher or why they hid all the dirty clothes in the closet instead of actually cleaning them.
You're Learning How To Live With Each Other
These fights just come with the territory of living together as a couple. You're eventually going to figure out all those messy little quirks that your partner has and either you'll both have to change or you'll just get used to them.

The Insecurities Fight
Insecurities are super normal because we're all human and unless you're an egomaniac you don't think of yourself as completely flawless. That's why you might not think that someone could ever love you as much as you love them, which is completely untrue but can cause a few fights between partners.
You Want Them To Tell You How Amazing You Are
These fights are caused by your insecurities because all you want to hear your partner say is how amazing you are and how much they love you. But when you cause a fight to get that reaction, it doesn't usually end well. Your partner might take this as you doubting their feelings toward you, which is not how you want them to take it at all.

The Future Fight
This is probably one of the biggest fight that couples will experience in their relationship because it's when you discover what both of you want for your futures. It's probably the first in a series of fights that will take place regarding the future.
You Need To Discover If The Relationship Will Go Anywhere
These fights usually aren't very fun ones, and after you hear what your partner has to say it could be the end of the relationship eventually. But you need to have this fight because if you don't you'll never know whether the relationship will move forward or not.

The Deciding What To Eat Fight
Oh yes, the deciding what to eat fight. I'm sure every couple has had this fight, probably more than once. Girls are notorious for saying they don't care what you guys eat and then shooting down every idea their partner comes up with. It's just what we do and it can be very infuriating.
You're Both Hangry
The only reason a fight like this escalates is because you can't decide on what you both want to eat and you continue to get hangrier as time goes on. You definitely shouldn't mess with anyone when they're hangry. That's a fact.

The Asking For Directions Fight
Guys are notorious for not wanting to ask for directions even when they clearly know they're lost. Women don't really care about asking for directions, we just want to make sure we get to where we're going without ending up stranded in the middle of nowhere.
They Don't Want To Swallow Their Pride
This one has everything to do with pride. It's hard for people to admit when they made a mistake, even if it's as small as making a wrong turn when you're driving. Forcing someone to admit their mistake is inevitably going to cause an argument.
