It’s a relationship fact that all couples fight, no matter how much they love each other or how happy they are together. There are silly, normal fights, and then there are fights that are indicative of something bad happening beneath the surface. You know when a fight feels a bit off, but even if it feels like it might be okay, you can never help but wonder: Do happy couples fight about this stuff? Honestly, maybe not, because there are certain things that happy couples never fight about… or rarely ever fight about. By the way, when I say happy, I mean that your relationship is in a good place and that you two function well as a couple.

To say “you know it when you feel it” sounds trite and condescending. You each know your relationship and what your personal “normal” is. However, these fights are pretty much universally bad, as in, even if your parents had these fights, it might be a sign that they aren’t a happy couple. Regardless of age or experience, these fights are not a healthy part of any relationship.

Of course, if one of these fights happens once, that doesn’t mean you need to break up ASAP – it becomes a problem if they’re happening more than once. Here are seven things happy couples never fight about:
