We fought for 4 months straight about our livingroom furniture…particularily the couch. We just made a long distance move and decided to only bring the essentials. This meant we didn’t bring many of our larger furniture items. We literally fought for 4 months about what couch to buy and couldn’t come to a compromise so we didn’t have a couch for 4 months! The whole time neither of us budged until we found a couch that was the perfect hybrid of the functionality and comfort Fiance wanted and the style I wanted. It was ridiculous…lol.

LOL! Yup of course! I get pissed when his ipod alarm goes off with some crazy song and he sleeps through it making me wake up to wake him up to turn the damn thing off! GARRR!

He plays video games…need I say more? LOL! He gets so pissed off that the game “is cheating” he hollars and yells at it like it’s a another person.  Then, if he’s really angry over losing he tosses the controller at the couch (so it doesn’t break…lol). Makes me so mad…IT’S ONLY A VIDEO GAME!

My Fiance and I are both in graduate school for English and Comparative Literature, and we sometimes get into the most heated literary arguments. For instance, we once had a very spirited argument over whether or not Huck Finn is better than Tom Sawyer It’s so silly, but we both get so invested in the issues!

Wow are you me? I cant tell you how many dumb fights we get into because I get irritated easily. Its actually something I am trying to work on. A big part of it is that I take all of my stress and anxiety out on Darling Husband and thats not good. I always get annoyed with him for leaving the sponge in the sink, leaving the toilet seat up, and getting water allllll over the sink and faucet when he is brushing his teeth. We actually just made a deal the other day that if he cleans the cat’s litter 100% of the time that I cannot yell at him for stupid little things. Its only been 2 days but I am going to try really hard!

We argue about Dunkin Donuts v. Starbucks all the time (I’m team Starbucks)

We also argue about him having the sniffles in the morning and not blowing his nose.  He will just walk around the room in the morning getting ready (he gets up much earlier than me on most days) and every 2 seconds I hear, “SNIFF”  ….”SNIFF”….”SNIFF” and finally I lift my head and say, “GODDAMNIT GO BLOW YOUR FUCKING NOSE” lol  and he’s like, “NO I DON’T HAVE TO” etc…

We bicker a lot. He says I complain too much and I think he gets mad too easily. Hahaha.

Oh yes.  He gets mad at me for when I wash dishes and drain the water, but don’t rinse out the sink, so all the crud hardens in the sink…I agree with him it’s gross but I always intend to go back before it hardens…

We have an ongoing fight about how on my days off I clean the house or work on wedding stuff the whoooooole time.  On his days off, he watches TV unless I make him a todo list.  Humph.

He ALWAYS leaves boxes of crackers and stuff OPEN when he’s done eating…so then they get stale and I have to throw them out.  Oh. My. Goodness.  Common sense?

LOL

When we first started dating I would start fights about why we don’t fight. I grew up thinking that relationships=fighting (yes, I need therapy). It was so stupid, the non-fights usually ended with me in tears because I thought something was wrong with us.

We nag at each other when one of us gets lazy and has to pick up after the other person. Examples…not putting dishes away or hanging up a jacket. When one of us gets cranky we’re more likely to fight about something… like ‘you forgot to pay that bill today” or ” why do you always leave the toilet seat up” . He knows though, if I’m cranky, I usually just need food. I get cranky when I’m hungry 😉

Video games are not real. The accomplishments you make do not actually matter in real life. Do not tell me about how you unlocked a new title/weapon/level when the laundry is not done and there are dishes in the sink.

@helenberrycrunch:

haha my husband told me how he found 8 diamonds the other night and i was like, “oh really? sweet we can buy a house now and retire!”  LOL such dorks with those dumb games.  but then again, i’m very happy to have him home in the office playing those games then out somewhere.  he’s not over the top or addicted to the games, i’m lucky.  so i dont get on him about playing. he works hard every day for us and if he wants to come home and have some “me” time on the computer, i’m not going to interrupt it.  i’m such a good wife i’ll even bring him dinner to his desk if he’s in the middle of playing something.

@helenberrycrunch: Ah, my kind of woman.

J and I bicker and nit pick a lot.  Sometimes he’s a smart ass at the wrong times.  Most recent example:

  • I was having a rough day at work on Sunday.  I called him on the way to a judge’s house to sign commitment papers because the courier doesn’t work on weekends.  So, the judge’s house was in our vicinity (thank godness) and I said something to J about how the judge told me to look for something farms.  As I was going down the street, I saw white picket fences.  I brought this up with J and asked him if that’s what it looked like because I didn’t see a sign nor could I remember the farm name (completely new to this area).  J’s response was “all farms look the same.  A farm is a farm.”  Well, because I was already irritated and not even wanting to do this, I didn’t take it too lightly.

It was completely stupid and I know he was being a smart ass.  I just didn’t want to deal with it at the time.  I was looking for his help and support, but never leave it to him to be serious about much.
