    something's got to give

    "When two people who don't get on are thrust together,
    something's got to give."
    I wonder what this sentence means.
    "When two people who don't get along well get together,
    something must happen (fighting will happen)"???

    Thank you.

    No...the two people already are arguing or perhaps fighting if they don't get along.

    something's got to give in this context means one person will dominate the other eventually.
