The best couples fight... A lot!

09 June 2015, 15:28 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - No, I am not talking about those people who say that if there partner beats them physically, that is the best way they think their partner can express their love. I am not talking about those whack jobs! If you are one of them then you really are mental and need a therapist that your current love.


Or those ones who constantly stir up trouble in their relationships to ‘spice’ it up. Or the nutcases who think they have the best sex after an argument. It can be true because that is where you deposit all that aggression but that high will only last you for a second before you come down on earth. Like ecstasy feels good while you are at it until you run out and you need to get more or you are screwed.


What I am talking about or actually believe in is when you as a couple have been through so much but it does not make you drift apart but makes you stronger. The fact that if you go home with bad news at the end of the day, you as the man or woman are not thinking up a lie to get away from the impending storm. You are not dripping in sweat because your partner is a nuclear reactant and never takes any bad news well. I am talking about that couple that if one of you lost the job they know that their partner will be there after that crisis to help them strategize. They will be there for you no matter the outcome of any downhill situation. Those partners that have gone through so much-family, debt, you name it. Thy go through it but they still run back to each other to figure it out because they are each other’s cornerstone.


At times I think majority of the people I know live under a false believe that the best relationships are the ones that have the couple are always smiling. Always happy, jovial and have never had an argument because they just ‘click’! What is that? In my opinion I completely disagree with that. Because no matter how high that tower goes all it needs is a simple crack or blow and some floors come down, if not all. This is when that one time that something really small happens, the two of you do not even know how to deal with it. One partner is afraid of talking to the other partner because they do not know how they will react so they sweep it under the rag or they both refuse to have a real conversation about it because they would rather be the happy go lucky.


The best belief you can ever be served in a relationship is not to be afraid of confronting something with your partner because it will teach you the kind of people you are around each other. It teaches you how the both of you will react when your situation takes a turn for the worse. It might not be in your best interest but at least you now know what to expect and how you will deal with it. At least you now know that if you were in trouble, would your partner act as your shield or that extra arrow that goes through you.


Handling disagreements, confrontation or a crisis in a relationship is the true test of its bounds or of your love if you would like to equate it to that. Is your partner going to be supportive when you want to go back to school or will they wonder who will take care of the household while you are away? Will they be angry if a relative needs assistance and they need to stay with you so they make the situation harder or will they help out until that situation is resolved? I do not know about cheating and adultery, I will not pretend to be an expert and give you advice on that. You will be the one to decide whether it is a crisis, argument, minor tiff or unresolved issue. That is up to you and how much you value that relationship!


Staying with a serial cheater, liar or criminal is not handling a crisis but enabling a situation that will never end. In my opinion!
