Courteney Cox in August's InStyle

What Do You Fight Over?

Courteney Cox knows nobody's ever loved for acting perfect. In August's InStyle the cover girl confessed she and husband David Arquette have been having the same argument for the better part of their 11-year marriage.

"We've done couples therapy in the past. We're not lazy about our marriage," she said. "We have the same arguments we've had for years."

With friends, family, and significant others, relationships have an MO. We come up against the same problems over and over again, from money to sex to dishes in the sink. Whether you're married or in a relationship, what's your never-ending argument?

We don't really have fights but we do have "emotional discussions" usually about money, sex, or an insensitive comment one of us made. But we probably butt heads most (but not overly emotionally) about housework issues like cooking, cleaning, groceries and (my) clutter. I'm of the opinion that these issues will be resolved once I don't have to work full-time anymore, because I would be happy to do all of it if I had more time and energy for it. Right now I put in more hours at work and he's got more free time (he gets paid much more by the hour than I do, though!) so carries more of the workload but I don't really like the way he does things and of course I can't really complain about it since I'm not helping as much...

Our big arguments were internet and sex. When my husband, my daughter, and I were home, he was on the internet. I was playing, making dinner, cleaning up, and taking care of bath and bedtime. Once I was thoroughly exhausted from doing work all day and work all evening, I'd crawl in to bed and he'd try to initiate sex. >:( Dude! No! We were not able to resolve our arguments, even with counseling, and we divorced.

We don't have big fights over anything, not even roomate stuff really...when we fight it's always over something so stupid, like I will make a snarky comment for no reason, or I will be angry about nothing which will get him on the defensive, or he will be in a bad mood and not talking which will get me asking questions - but generally it would be if I think he isn't giving me the courtesy of asking my opinion on plans (usually with his friends) or being pissed because I feel I'm not getting enough attention or something. It's usually nothing. Like it sounds like something but seriously our fights are like nothing one-hour things.

My husband and I have the same arguement Not who makes more kind of arguement - it's more of how much should we save versus what should we spend it on, etc. I have this grand idea of how we can reach financial wealth and still be able to spend for fun while my husband is the spur of the moment, let's get "this" kind of spender. It makes it difficult to trust that we'll get to where we need to be if I leave it up to him alone. The good news? It always ends in a compromise.
