Dumbest Hubby and Wife Arguments



huband and wife arguments

The worst arguments I have with my husband are not the typical deal breakers like money, sex, or parenting differences. We tend to go at it over incredibly stupid things like silverware placement in the dishwasher or the right way to fold socks.

From the Marriage and Relationships group, some really dumb husband and wife (or boyfriend and girlfriend) arguments:

-- I made a rice dinner and he wanted pasta. He wouldn't even eat that night he was so mad. But yet when I asked what he wanted for dinner earlier, he said, "It doesn't matter."

-- My DH and I argued for three hours over what actor played which character in a movie we were watching. I don't even remember the movie or the actor now, just that we argued for three flipping hours over it. Beyond stupidity.

-- When trying to pick out a name for our baby due in November, we argued for three hours (and I got upset) about being able to name the baby and call her by her middle name and not her first. He said that a first name is there for a reason and if you are going to call her by her middle name, it needs to be her first name.

-- It was over eggs. We were making a Sunday breakfast and he asked me to mix the scrambled eggs. I did mix the eggs, but apparently not well enough. He said I was lazy and did everything half-assed. It started a two-day argument.

-- We were playing World of Warcraft one night and I failed to heal his character (because mine was  being killed by another player) and he died and we both started yelling at each other, then I started crying. Then about 10 minutes later we realized how stupid we were both being. Good times.

-- It was over what looked better, a short-bed extended cab Chevrolet truck or a long-bed extended bed Chevrolet truck. This whole argument took at least 2 hours. How ridiculous!

What was the silliest argument you and your SO have ever had?

lol, ohhhh we've had a few- we've had the "how to fold socks" argument (the most ridiculous argument on the planet, no?) and I once served pears with cheese with dinner and dh insisted we COULDN'T have pears with dinner- why? Because he'd never seen it before and it was "weird", lol. I sometimes let the kids do desert first as a treat for say a birthday and dh has a fit- like it's going to kill them. He's just sooooo bland and everything MUST BE THIS WAY- (brown carpet beige walls guy I call him) anything out of his comfort zone throws him into a tiny tizzy- but over the years he's begun to accept that I'm not cut from that cloth and is learning to take my minor eccentricities in stride, lol, though I'm sure he's flinching on the inside, lol.....

I love the WoW one, that's too funny.

Our biggest argument over something stupid was over who would buckle our daughter in the car. My husband likes to put her in the truck, and then expect me to turn around from the front seat and buckle her, but it kills my back to do this. So I snapped at him to please buckle her because I hate having to do it from the front. He told me that I could just stay home. Then we proceeded to argue about who would keep the child (I expected him to still take her..) and it escalated from there. It was pretty ridiculous.

Our silliest fight was about how to fold shirts. I did laundry, folded everything and put it all away. Chris came home opened his shirt drawer and pulled everything out. He was mumbling the entire time while he refolded everything. It was hot, I was 35 weeks pregnant tensions were high. I told him he better fold the blanket too and take it to the spare bedroom because he wasn't gonna be in my bed. We avoided each other for the next 3 hours, until we both realized it was the dumbest thing to mad over.

Oh and the reason he thinks his way is better (although, really it is) is because he used to work in the apparel department at Fred Meyer's. He also used to work in the produce department so he also has to pick out the produce when we go grocery shopping.

Stupid arguments are one thing.  Crossing the line into verbal abuse is another, and happens more often than some might think.  Check out the book  "Verbal Abuse" by Patricia Evans, and "Why Does He Do That?" by Lundy Bancroft for a better understanding of the abuser mentality.
