Experts Say Arguing More With Your Partner Is Normal, Right Now


According to a newsurveyby The Knot, 75% of respondents said they are spending more time with their partner these days – and that has resulted in more bickering. 40% of married survey respondents say they've experienced an increase in small arguments since sheltering at home together, compared to 20% of recently engaged or newly married couples.

Don’t worry – experts say this isn’t a sign of serious relationship problems. Frustrations with each other are inevitable when you’re both navigating working from home, trying to home school and keep your kids entertained, and just dealing with the crazy up and down emotions that come with living through a pandemic.
