Most couples say money issues but that isn't with me and my hubby! having less money seems to bring us closer we talk better and figure out what we are gonna do about the situation! so I would have to say the main thing we fight about would be having to ask him so many times to do something... some times it feels like I am talking to my 3 year old.

my husband has the attention span of an 8 yr old, so half the time he doesn't hear a word i say ANNOYING!! and we have VERY different styles of discipline.. i'd say thats what we fight about most.

I argue with my husband about everything....we argue about not having enough money, how to raise Maddie, never having time for each other, me always doing the brunt of the housework and eveything else, we even argue about sex...but I love him and in the end a fight every now and again keeps us health if you ask me.

AS STUPID AS IT SOUNDS WE FIGHT ABOUT NOT UNDERSTANDING EACH OTHER . . . I'LL DO EVERYTHING I CAN TO UNDERSTAND HIS POINT ON THINGS, BUT HE NEVER TRIES TO UNDERSTAND ME AND THAT'S WHERE THE ARGUING STARTS . . . WE GET ALONG FINE AND OUR RELATIONSHIP IS GOING WELL, BUT WHEN IT STARTS IT STARTS . . . THEN AGAIN, NO RELATIONSHIP IS PERFECT, AND THE IMPERFECTIONS IS WHAT MAKES US STRONGER . . .

We argue everytime when it comes to looking after the kids! kids DONOT EXIST when he is busy!!!!! it can be tv,computer,his sleep or his office work......me being a SAHM makes him think that i am responsible for the kids all time.otherwise he is an excellent hubby.wish men knew we too need time for ourselves....

We often argue about our roles in marriage. We are both head-strong and both think we're right. We usually argue about who's job is more important, mine (SAHM of 4 girls) or his....which he still has trouble getting through his thick skull that a mother/wife's job is always harder than a man's!!!! lol

My husband and I fight more about finances more then anything, but other times it is intimacy issues.

We just had our second child a month ago, so we tend to argue about sleep and me craving cigarettes again.

Him not understanding why I have to have male friends..we argue over lil stuff like him not dealing w/his BM the way i feel he should but our ONLY Major problem is the friendship thing. I grew up a military kid so I traveled a lot and he grew up a regular stable kid. I dnt work because of my sickle cell so I'm not in the public, i'm home all day with my kids and i don't drive. So my need for friends and or the friends that i had grown up that I've come bac in contact with is imortant to me. Because a lot of them happen to be male it's a slight problem. He's insecure cus he thinks i'm too pretty so anyone that is male is a threat. He's my bestfriend though and i want him hapy so I give up my male friends (some) and make sure i dnt do anything that makes him fel less than a man.

Me and my hubbie always seem to argue about the fact that I refuse to dry the pots. I prefer to leave them to drip dry then put them away. I keep telling him that germs and bacteria are all over the towel to dry the dishes as the water is being collected on the towel and then is being wiped onto an other dish so the best way to make sure they are clean is to drip dry. He wont have any of it. The dishes are only left on the drainer for no more than 2 hours then put away in the cupboards. We also seem to be arguing at the moment about me giving the children there medication every day but the way I look at it is I am in the medication cabinet anyway for my medication so why should I do my medication and not the children. If he wants to stress of making sure the children get the medication at the right time of day then he can but I now because he isn't in the cabinet at all during the day he will forget and then th children will only become ill again

Right now my huband and I seem to fight ALOT. He has been out of a job for the last 7 months and we argue about everything from money to having to live with his parents to him not helping me enough to me being bitchy (all of the above cause that) and me not wanting to live here (my family is 8 hrs away). Hopefully the job situation will take care of a bunch of those issues.

housework and him not doing any. I work full time too and I dont want to come home to clean up his mess. Although he swears up and down he doesnt mess up anything. So who does it our 5 month old or Casper the Friendly Ghost?

My hubby and I pretty much agree on all the major decisions surrounding our lives right now. The arguments we do have with 3 small children is definetely about the amount and quality of time we have to spend with each other. We've been married 10 years this year and I've found that each stage of marriage brings different arguments. As long as you agree on the major things and do your best to work through the rest, you'll be alright.

Prob just more surface-level reactions when we're overtired, otherwise things to do with different upbringings (like priorities or expectations or fam involvement)... but I don't really see them as "fights" more just differences :D Better communicated that hidden

[deleted account]

Its sounds strange, but we never fight. I get a little upset with him when he snores and keeps me awake, but that is about it!!!!

Dont get me wrong, we dont always agree on everything, but we dont get into arguments about them. I feel very blessed!

My husband doesn't consider being a stay at home mom a job. Taking care of our son and our home, doing all the laundry, all the errands, all the cleaning, all the cooking. He thinks that when he gets home and I need help with our son so I can make dinner, he always says, "I worked all day!" Well, guess what buddy, so did I. Does he think that he has clean underwear because they felt like walking to the washer and dryer? No! I washed them! My main job is taking care of our son, that goes 24/7 every single day. At least my husband has off nights and weekends.

I will say it is him thinking my son's behavior is funny and not supporting my discipline decisions. He makes these jokes all the time as well as excuses for the boy! He is super witty and is generally hilarious but I hate having to parent both of them! Recently my son was in trouble at school and the teacher said "That's it I am calling your parents!" he smiled and said ok but can you call my dad he thinks I am funny? UGH!

my husband was a big gamer.. playing online video games and console video games.. he started playing ones that cost money and tried to deny it to me... thats really the only thing we have ever fought about... we dont let little things like money issues get to us... we are really good about letting things roll off our backs and not worrying about it as long as our kid is happy, we are happy!

I would have to say we argue the most about the housework as I am a stay at home mom I appreciate that during the week its mainly up to me to look after the kids and the house but at the weekends when he is at home I think its only fair that he pulls his weight and after I've nagged him for an hour or more to do what I've been looking for him to do he'll do it badly and I end up doing it myself and he gets vexed and tells me why do I ask him in the first place aarrgh!!! Bur I no how you feel shelly we would often be having a chat about something and I would bring up something that I had said earlier and he will have no idea what I am talking about and then I'll realise that I had told him while he was watching tv or reading or something and its so annoying!!!!

Erinn,

I guess I would have to say it would be him not listening to me...Or when he swears up and down that he told me something and theres no way,,,I know that it's because he thinks about it so much that he thinks he has told me...But the biggest one is him not listening to me and he doesn't even think that it's that big of a deal...And after 19 yrs you would think I would be use to it
