Dear Carol

"Dear Carol, my boyfriend and I fight all the time"

Dear Carol,
My boyfriend and I have been going out for two months. People say fighting is normal, but we fight all the time and sometimes I want to break up with him.

Dear Fighting,  
Constant fighting is not normal. If being together doesn't mostly make you two happy, it's time to gracefully set each other free—without regrets. Some loud couples learn to agree to disagree about parties, politics or pizza toppings instead of yelling 24/7. Others realize it's better to explain than to confront. Say, "I feel upset when you are late" rather than "What? You're late again?!" Good luck breaking up—or at least breaking this bad habit.
