Fair Fighting Rules

Updated: Sep 16, 2023

Fair Fighting Rules

Every relationship has disagreements. It’s how we handle those disagreements that counts. A bad argument can turn even a little problem into a big one, making it emotionally charged and painful.

This is where fair fighting rules come in. Fair fighting rules don’t tell us we can’t argue. Instead, they tell us how to do it safely. They tell us what’s okay—and what’s crossing the line—in an argument.

Preparing for Fair Fighting

discuss one topic at a time

No degrading language

Express your feelings with words

take turns speaking

No Stonewalling

No Yelling

Take a time-out if things get too heater

Attempt to come to compromise or an understanding
