Fighting I. Types A. Substantive – Fighting about issues. Debate on the data; opinion of something. No hard data… B. Procedural – Talking about the process. “Should we go to dinner or movies first” fighting about the procedure. Good form of conflict; every couple has this kind of argument. C. Affective – Evil fighting. Fighting about each other and each others feelings. Not about issues but about each other. Hurtful! Not a good thing to have happen. II. Unfair Fighting A. Exploitative – Taking advantage of you in some way. 1. Hitting below the belt – pick a weakness and push on it. 2. Morality – Use a moral argument that isn’t relevant. Using morality on a non morality issue. 3. Blaming the other for something they can’t control – parents; siblings 4. Comparisons – comparison to your brothers/sisters. 5. Indirect fighting – rather than someone fighting directly they will go through a roommate or parents.
