Do not argue through text messages
Texting can be a great way to keep in touch. It is such a common way of communicating that it's easy to forget that it has some very serious limitations when it comes to conveying the finer points of human interaction.
Texting is not a good medium for resolving conflict. Text messages lack tone of voice, facial expressions, and inflection. This leaves the reader to interpret what you've said in their own way and therefore, the meaning of your words can get lost.
You could be being sarcastic, but without the inflection in your voice, they may not get that. You could be being direct, but without facial expressions and tone of voice, they might feel you are being rude.
For example, if I you text your partner "OK," they might think you are annoyed or uninterested because it sounds short or abrupt. In reality, you might just be saying "OK" to confirm that you understand or you are agreeing to what they said.
