It’s fair to say that most of us don’t see arguments with our significant other as a good thing. While a good row can help clear the end, it’s also a pretty unpleasant experience to disagree with the person most important to you in the world. Yet the disagreements happen. They’re not a bad omen, either – arguing genuinely is healthy and helps you reset the boundaries of a relationship. It’s far better to have a big row than descend into spiteful, passive aggressive comments aimed at one another!
There are many areas which can cause a flare up in a relationship, but going through home renovations is right near the top of the list. It’s only natural, really. The process of a renovation is unsettling; part of your home has to become incredibly disorganised in an effort to make it wonderful. When you’re unsettled, you’re tetchy – multiply that with general relationship dynamics and soon, tempers are likely to flare.
