Couples share the silliest things they've fought about
Posted March 5
Even if you did marry your Prince Charming, there are bound to be things you and him disagree about. Maybe it’s something more serious (like rules on disciplining your kiddos) or something… less essential. These couples know exactly where you are coming from — sharing the arguments they’ve had with their spouse on online message boards here and here. Do any of these sound familiar?
1. Nest your cereal bowls… please!
“My wife and I have an ongoing passive-aggressive battle about how the dishwasher should be loaded. How hard is it to nest the cereal bowls on the top rack anyway?”
2. Anyone for stir-fry?
“The proper ratio of rice to water.”
3. Not the flavors, just how many to buy
“We don't really fight, but last night we had an mini argument about how many yogurts to buy.”
4. We are all adults here
“My husband and I argued over who would take one particular lunchbox to work with us the next day... We are both 31.”
5. Don’t bring out Monopoly
“Over a game of Apples to Apples.”
6. Tiptoe around that topic
“My fiancée and I got in an argument about what the ‘top’ of your toe was (whether it was the part where your toenail is, or, you know, the part that touches the front of your shoes)."
7. I’m with him on this
“The first fight my wife and I had when we were dating was over tortilla chips. We were eating chips and bean dip and she kept taking the biggest chips and then breaking them in half to dip them. I got mad because I like the big chips so I can get a nice big scoop of dip, and there were already plenty of smaller chips in the bag. She argued that those smaller chips aren't quite the right size and that the only way she could get the perfect size was by breaking the big ones. We argued for like 20 minutes and then didn't talk to each other for the rest of the night."
“In the end, we realized it was a ridiculous thing to fight about and agreed to disagree. Now we laugh about it whenever it comes up… I still think I'm right, though.”
8. But what if?!
“My wife and I got into a shouting match as to who’s friend's wedding we would attend IF they scheduled them for the same weekend. Neither was even engaged yet.”
9. Breakfast battles
“What Pop-Tart flavor was the best.”
“My wife and I got into a screaming match because our broccoli wasn't growing as well as we thought it should, and clearly it was the other person's fault.”
11. This means war
“I ate the middle brownie. She was legitimately [upset] and didn’t talk to me for the rest of the day. [The]worst part is I actually prefer the crusty ones on the edge; it was just easier to get the middle one out.”
