Do you think that experiencing a rough patch with your partner (close to splitting up) and coming out the other end better will make a relationship stronger?

Just petty arguments that built up mostly due to external factors. So no cheating or anything

That's where the good stuff happens. Anyone can get on with anyone else when the sun is shining and everything in the garden is lovely. It's when the **** hits the fan, and trouble comes along that your relationship is tested: and becomes stronger as a result.

Both my sons split up with their respective girlfriends and both got back together - son number one is now married to her and son number 2 talking of marriage and kids...... so yes is the answer. Makes you realise the good things about each other. As long as you have worked out the differences

As long as you move forward, become more open, develop better ways of communicating, feel more understood and understand the other more too.

If you argue or go through rough patches a lot without moving forward, then no, you probably just need to split up. But a rough patch can be where you both grow together or learn about and face things you weren't aware of before. That's healthy.

As long as you resolve the problem then definitely, yes.
You learn to communicate effectively and solve issues rather than walking away from them.
There’s very little we can do about external factors. You have to work as a team It’s not easy but it can be done if you want to.
Speaking as an old hand at this marriage lark

What about if initially there was a lot of arguing without moving forward (for roughly 6 months) but then it got to a point where it was so bad that they were forced to make some changes? Does that sound healthy?

Both partners need to be willing to make things work, and genuinely if both partners want to continue after being through the rough patch then yeah it does make you stronger, and I believe this based on my experience

It just takes a lot of timeeeee

Not sure why you’re bumping. You’ve had enough answers and they’re all consistent.
