When you don’t fight fair someone’s feelings could get seriously hurt and the damage can be irreversible. It’s not okay to belittle your partner and/or act immature during a fight because you never know how strongly your partner feels about the disagreement. When you feel strong about a disagreement you will begin to understand and know when to “pick your battles”, which we will revisit as this article continues.
In order to fight fair you have to maintain control, which is easier said than done, but it’s very possible. Be conscious of what you’re saying and avoid “hitting below the belt”. We all know what makes our partner tick and some of us use this during fights to “win” by revisiting the past or a topic that’s taboo.
No matter how great your relationship might be fights are inevitable and unavoidable.

There is no rule book for fighting fair but there are some things one should avoid and be mindful of in hopes of fighting fair.
