Myth #5: Any relationship can be ruined by a fight.
The Truth: It's not the fight itself that can ruin your relationship - it's failure to resolve the conflict and make up afterward that can.
Fights are a form of communication that can actually be healthy, because they allow the real truth to come out.
What kind of fight you have also makes a difference. Fights in which one or both partners are condescending, scornful, or nasty toward the other, end without a resolution, and prevent both partners from speaking to each other for days on end do cause real damage to relationships.
