What Do and Your Spouse Fight About?
Lucky 13. Yesterday, was my 13th wedding anniversary. We didn't do much, life gets in the way sometimes. But I still appreciate that every year deserves a nod of appreciation (well, I actually think it deserves more than that but my husband isn't that kind of guy and I've decided to accept that.) Because marriage is hard, and as I said last year it's a decision you decide to make everyday.
Little Miss Mocha wrote a much nicer marriage post (our anniversaries are one day apart) and I appreciated her sentiments that loving your children is simple but your relationship with your spouse is more...complicated.
MSN.ca asked me to write a top 10 marriage fights gallery for the lifestyle section. Which I did. But what I wanted to say is that all marriage fights are essentially the same. The velocity of the fight and the path may be different but the emotions of wanting to be loved, forgiven and validated are always the same.
But every relationship has their fight triggers; I ranked arguing about money as the number one fight. Is that true in your house? What do you fight about the most?
This was supposed to be a post celebrating my 13th anniversary and instead it turned into a post about fighting. But a good marriage isn't all champagne and great sex right? The darker moments help us appreciate the ones infused with light.
Want more chaos? Last year, I wrote about my 12th anniversary. (surprise!)
