Even though people you may know seem to think there is, there is no such thing as a perfect relationship. Every couple squabbles at one point or another. Most couples have the same fights as others. Here is a list of 10 arguments that almost every couple has, whether they admit it or not.

1. Big fights about nothing: Big fights stem from little fights over something such as kids, money, or even where to go out to eat. These little fights are a result of stress. Calm down, talk it out, and don’t let the little things escalate.

2. Money troubles: Most couples have financial issues at one point or another in their lives. Usually the money troubles are more common when a couple is first starting out.

3. Being part of your significant other’s family: Even if everything went smoothly at the wedding, there are still squabbles over who is going to which relative’s house for holidays, how often to visit each other’s family, and making sure everyone is included. This can be extremely stressful.

4. Babies: When couples first have children, it is one of the most stressful events in a relationship. There are fights over how to raise the child, who is responsible for what, and how much money is needed.

5. Older children: As the children grow up, the arguments continue. Decisions need to be made and there are going to be disagreements.

6. S*x droughts: When the s*x goes, the other gets suspicious as to why you don’t want to do it. Arguments can ensue about cheating as the other tries to figure out why you aren’t interested.

7. Big decisions: Moving or changing careers is a fight that most couples have at one point or another.

8. Emotional drought: You get stuck in a rut once you have been with someone for so long and need to spice up the relationship.

9. Tragedy: Death or severe injuries can cause a strain in the relationship due to the emotions that are running high.

10. Getting older: No one likes getting older, some take it harder than others. When they get stressed about getting older, sometimes it is taken out on the other party.
