How do you get through an argument with your partner or spouse? On several occasions, especially in the first few years of our relationship, my fiance and I would realize that we were actively participating in an argument that was going in circles with no resolution while we just became angrier with each other, so we would each retreat to our computers and chat it out. Having to type what we wanted to say to each other in clear and concise sentences seemed to calm us both down, and it was easier for me to abandon my own personal need to have the last word.
