People hate having a fight with their significant other but sometimes quarrels cannot be avoided. Arguments and disagreements are part of any romantic relationship, regardless of their strength and duration.
However, fighting isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes it can bring couples together and create a stronger bond that will allow their relationship to last and endure almost any hardship. Here are three issues that often lead to arguments, which can be beneficial in the long run.
1. Can We Handle Chores Equitably
Living with someone isn’t easy and requires a certain degree of commitment and compromise. When one partner does all the cleaning and groceries and the other only lies around, this can create tension that needs to be addressed. Having a fight about dividing chores more equitably can lead to a better dynamic where none of the parties feel in servitude to the other.
2. Fight Due to Partner’s Family
Being in a relationship with someone means interacting with their parents and relatives every now and then. For some, this could be a good thing, a great thing because the bigger the family the better. But for others, this can be annoying, especially if their partner’s family is being intrusive and disrespectful of set boundaries. Having a quarrel about that can be difficult but it can help couples better understand one another. It’s an important topic that shouldn’t be ignored when brought up.
3. Let’s Talk About The Future
After a certain amount of time, relationships evolve from dating and casual interactions to serious partnerships aimed towards the future. It’s important to discuss things such as marriage, kids, living arrangements, career goals, etc, even if it means having an argument. It’s important for partners to know what their stances on these matters are.
Having a fight can be stressful and aggravating, but it can also be cathartic as it provokes answers to important questions that shouldn’t be dismissed by couples.

Brittany Johnson Is Best Known for Her Instagram Persona Lovely Peaches
While Lovely Peaches has proven to be a notorious internet figure during the past five years and has made many controversial statements, things got serious for her after she posted disturbing photos and videos featuring her dog. People on social media were quick to spread the video where Johnson picked her dog up by the neck and sprayed perfume in its face, as well as the one where she claimed to have broken the dog’s legs.
Lovely Peaches Took the Videos Down But Twitter Users Recorded and Shared Them
One YouTuber who often covers the drama that Lovely Peaches generates posted a blurred version of the video and warned potential viewers that it was very upsetting to watch. Soon, people were calling for the dog to be taken away from Brittany and for her to face charges. Apparently, some Twitter users claimed to have already called the police. Johnson made sure to fan the flames with an Instagram post that said her dog had died.
Soon after, Johnson was arrested on a charge of animal cruelty, and it turned out that her dog is actually still alive. Officials from the police department said she will not be allowed to own or care for animals until her case has been concluded. The dog in question was a Jack Russell Terrier, which was taken into custody by representatives from Animal Services. A veterinarian examined the canine and Johnson voluntarily signed over the custody of the animal. So far, no trial date has been set.
Lovely Peaches gained social media fame in 2016 and managed to retain it through many accounts on various platforms, including Instagram. While her content was initially perceived by many as mere satire, her act was getting more and more outrageous, culminating with the current situation with her dog.
