Health Tip: Having Healthy Arguments

(HealthDay News) -- Disagreements with a friend or partner are normal, says the National Voice of Domestic Violence. But when a relationship is not built on respect and equal partnership, an unhealthy relationship may develop.

The organization mentions these characteristics of a healthy argument:

  • A disagreement about chores, spending habits, raising children or difficult family or friends.

  • Insensitive and hurtful comments are said occasionally, not consistently.

  • Partners can admit when they are wrong, take responsibility and compromise.

  • Tension is usually short-lived.

  • Goals and decisions can be questioned, but general support isn't withheld.

  • Final decisions on big life changes are reached by mutual compromise.
