Fighting words

Looking to explain your relationship fights with something other than "my boyfriend is stupid"?

Consult this Wall Street journal column, where one writer points to brain differences that can make couples butt heads.

Short summary: When one person is strong in analytical thinking and the other person is strong in conceptual thinking, you have a good chance of fighting over silly things.

I've been there.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure articles like this decrease a couple's chances of fighting.

They do, however, help you realize that occasional fights don't always mean your personalities are flawed. They're just...different.
