About This Quiz

Before you take this quiz, let's get one thing out there right now, it is totally normal for a couple to argue, and in fact, if you are in a relationship and you never argue at all, then there is probably something wrong with your relationship. It probably means that either you or your boyfriend are keeping things inside and are afraid to be honest about your feelings, which is never a good thing. On the other hand, if you argue all the time, that isn't a good thing either and is probably a sign of a bigger issue in your relationship. Then there is even how you argue. Having a long involved conversation where you both respect each other's viewpoints even though you disagree is a whole lot better than you two screaming at each other like banshees and throwing dishes around. 

So if you are arguing with your boyfriend, don't despair, it doesn't mean all is lost, but it might mean that you have some things to work on depending how you two are going at each other. There is only one way to find out how long you and your boyfriend will last, and that is to get into a fight with this quiz.  Just try not to hurt it too much.
