Young relationships are hard

Moral conflict happens when people are acting within divergent social worlds, according to different meanings. One of the reasons groups in conflict have trouble breaking the pattern of interaction between them is that each is caught in its own moral order.

It’s clear that conflict occurs because expectations are not being met. Each person enters into a relationship with certain expectations. These are constructed on past experiences or how you think things should be. The problem is that no two people think exactly the same, no matter how much you have in common.

Learning to compromise is not a quality that comes easy with being young. It can lead to arguments and at our age arguments lead to breakups.

Needless to say, going through a relationship while young can mature a young individual’s mind quickly, while also assisting them in discover what it is they will want out of future relationships in life.

According to Pew Research Center, dating and experience with romance are relatively common – but far from universal – among teens ages 13 to 17. Some 35% of teens have some type of experience in a romantic relationship, a figure that includes current and former daters, as well as those in serious and less-serious relationships.

First, in a relationship, some value more things than others. Your boyfriend may like to hang out with his bros and you feel that you never get time together. You have to understand each other and sometimes sacrifice.

Then, it is essential to acknowledge and understand each other’s point of views. There are many dissimilarities and many similarities. A great relationship is learning each other’s differences.

When two groups have completely different ways of making sense of life, it is likely that actions considered by one side as good and prudent will be distinguished by the other side as corrupt or foolish.This is because an action that one moral order might find perfectly acceptable may be regarded as a disgrace by a different moral order.   

People from the same culture have more or less similar realities and mindsets. Their values, presumption and methods become part of  “common sense” for them. Nevertheless, when two parties that do not share norms of communication and expectations about behavior must connect, and they often clash.

Learn to value what’s important to each other. Be candid about thoughts, feelings, and the desire direction of the relationship will allow you and your partner the opportunity to simultaneously explore yourselves and the relationship. Always trust yourself to be who you are and to look out for your well-being. Be as clear and direct as possible.
