It takes two to tango

Idiom: It takes two to tango


Example:

Kyle: I can't believe it! My girlfriend still won't speak to me.

James: Oooh, that's too bad, What did you do to make her so angry?

Kyle: Nothing! She just suddenly stopped talking!

James: Nothing? I find that hard to believe. It takes two to tango.


Meaning: conflict requires two participants. We use this idiom to indicate "fault," "blame," or responsibility for an argument or fight rests not with one but with two people.
