Common Fights in a Relationship: There are various reasons why a couple might argue, ranging from monetary issues, or possible infidelities. Perhaps a spouse does not clean up after themselves, or does not call when they are going to be late for dinner. Similarly, raising a child is difficult, and issues may arise concerning different parenting styles. Negative feelings towards a problem or person at work may be taken out on an unsuspecting partner at home, who is not sure what they did to provoke an argument. Couples therapy is available at the Center for Growth, Inc., in Center City, Philadelphia.
