The couples most in love are willing to push aside those subconscious (and conscious) desires to flee, in favor of sticking it out and fighting for one another.

Gautama Buddha once wisely cautioned, “Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”According to findings published in “Psychosomatic Medicine,” Buddha’s logic wasn’t just profound, but also scientifically sound.

It does, however, usually end in compromise and peace.

As we’ve all learned from a good fight, while getting through it may be difficult and painful, the result always ends in a stronger relationship.

These outbursts of truth can only come from a good, heated discussion.

Without these fights, people would be getting married and having children without knowing the true feelings and innermost desires of their partners.

Based on a 10-year study of 4,000 men and women in Framingham, Massachusetts, women, specifically, who hold onto anger or unresolved feelings during a fight are four times more at risk of dying than women who can express themselves.

CNN published the findings of another study by Ernest Harburg, Ph. The study followed 192 married couples from 1971 to 1988 and found that those who harbored their anger during a fight or when unjustly attacked did not live as long or as healthy as the couples who fought and resolved their issues fairly.

Was it the fight before the sex, or the sex before the fight?

We’re not sure which came first, but we’ve all experienced the make-up sex that comes after a good fight.

This partner isn’t really interested in fighting, more so yelling.
