The number of couples that end up choosing to break up because of a single fight is a lot higher than you might think. If you want to avoid a sad end to your relationship, you should do everything you can to avoid getting into a stubborn battle of wills. In this installment, we’ll introduce types of rules for avoiding relationship-ending fights.
