10 Wives Share the Silliest Arguments They’ve Ever Had With Their Spouses

10 Wives Share the Silliest Arguments They’ve Ever Had With Their Spouses

LOL! Ten married women share the silliest fights they’ve ever had with their partners.


By Wendy Robinson

If you are like most of us who are married or in a long-term relationship, you know that committing yourself to another person means a life full of love, laughter … and some really stupid fights.

My husband and I are generally pretty compatible. For the most part, we don’t fight about money or politics or other hot button issues, but we once fought for several hours (that included actual crying on my end) over the definition of “sport” and if you actually have to be good at a sport to be considered an “athlete.” This is perhaps only second to “the placemat fight” in terms of stupidity, but I can’t talk about the placemat fight yet without getting angry again. It has only been eight years.

Happily, I know that I’m not alone in the “big fights about stupid things” department. Behold some of the other doozies my friends have had:

1. Ellie: “Over what color his shirt was -- maroon is the RIGHT answer.”

2. Holly: “How to shave neck hair (his, not mine).”

3. Sara: “How to fold and put away socks.”

4. AndreAnna: “We had a throw-down screaming match over whether a spider was an insect or not.”

5. Elizabeth: “How to fold bath and hand towels.”

Note to readers: Maybe find out how your partner wants things folded before you get married, as this seems to be quite a sensitive issue.

6. Kate: “How to properly squeeze the toothpaste tube.”

7. Emily: “Our biggest fight to date was re: the validity of pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicavolcanoconiosis as an actual word. (I say yes.)”

8. Kate W: “The way the forks go into the dishwasher.”

9. Miriel: “The theoretical legitimacy of Valentine’s Day or whether or not to hang a giant star with ‘Texas’ wrought in barbed wire inside our house. (Except the answer is SO OBVIOUSLY NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT! that I can't believe anyone would disagree. Ahem.)”

10. Brooke: “Whether or not the neighbors in the apartment across the parking lot could see in our windows. (Uh. If we can't see in theirs, they can't see in ours, dude.)”

The good news is that all of these women are still happily married despite their partner’s different ideas about folding clothes and linens, shaving neck hair, loading a dishwasher, squeezing toothpaste, or identifying colors and appropriate home décor.

So, spill it, what was your dumbest fight?

The "which direction the toilet paper should come off the roll" debate can be an intense one!

I put his dirty jeans in the hamper "touching other dirty clothes."

Our argument was which direction the toilet paper should come off the roll. He was up, I was down, and I gave in.

We had a heated argument over whether or not he was actually going to drink a bottle of water or waste it (by throwing it in the trash half full). I'm sure a bottle someone hangs over the trash can isn't on it's way to quench someone's thirst. Lol
