Married people fight, and some fight more than others. Casey and I used to fight a lot. Our second year of a marriage was a disaster in the fighting department. It seemed like we were fighting with each other the majority of the time. It made that year pretty taxing on us and I think it took several years to get over that second year.
Over time, the number of fights we had keep shrinking until we only fought once or twice per week. Sometimes our fights were about nothing at all, but they would get pretty intense. Casey used to ask why we were fighting about stupid things and I would suggest that maybe it was because we were venting our pent up frustrations, even if we were letting them out over really stupid things. Once we rededicated ourselves to our marriage back in 2009, our fights have dwindled to maybe a couple per month, but when we do fight it’s almost always over the same 10 things.
Here are the 10 most common spousal fights that I have with my wife:
