Perfect VS Passion

Most of us have been in at least one of those relationships where nothing is wrong... EVER. There aren't any arguments because you agree on practically everything and when you don't neither of you wants to upset the other so you keep your mouth shut and your lips pursed for your next scheduled smooch.

And then there those relationships, so full of "passion" that nearly every discussion turns into an almost-argument. When you love and hate one another with equal measure and the conflicts themselves are as steamy as the make up aftermath.

But I can't help but wonder where the perfect balance can be found.

It seems, that like most things in life, the passion factor in relationships is all or nothing.

And if that's the case...

How much conflict is too much?

the good old test is to ask yourself this question:

am I happy?

if not, why not? is it the arguing?

if yes, u are, could you be happier?

i sometimes wonder if we put too much pressure on our primary relationship to make us happy.

we'd never consider ourselves "unhappy" solely based on an argument with a friend, boss, family member...

but when we argue with our SO, it becomes the pinnacle of our happiness or discontent.

i wonder why that is... is that not too much pressure to put on something as delicate as a romantic relationship?
