I’m just curious- sometimes my SO and I will get into fake arguments. Seriously, they’re all in good fun and neither of us take it seriously. My good friend will literally start slapping her boyfriend around while both are laughing. They have a very good relationship of over 2.5 years, but they bicker and fight a lot.
Do you think this is healthy? Do you ever mock fight with your SO?

Iheartmyairman: No, and honestly I think the idea sounds really immature.
DH and I will occasionally be snarky with each other, but I don’t see the benefit of “play” fighting or arguing or any good it would bring.
DH and I have been together for 11 years and we rarely fight/argue. We will occasionally bicker about mundane topic, but not often and we don’t do it for “fun.”

Iheartmyairman: yeah we do it sometimes. All in good fun. Sometimes one of us will say something and the other will just yell “Shut up!” and then laugh or we’ll say nice things to each other but in an angry tone. Idk why, just to be goofy. We don’t really fight for real much at all.

Ha! We do this all the time. We wrestle too. Great fun!
Life isn’t meant to be serious.

I know some people like the bickering whether it’s kidding or not. FI and I have always just gotten along really, really well and don’t do the bickering or play fighting thing. To each their own I guess.

We’ve gotten into heated political discussions in public, usually at restaurants. We have odd stopping points, like when food comes, or the bill comes, and the next second we’re laughing at something or getting ready to leave hand in hand. We usually provoke some odd looks from those around us as, we’ve been told, it can sound like we’re ready to rip each other’s throats out.

I think it all depends on whether there is genuine malice involved. If not, it’s just normal squabbling.
