Is it seemingly insignificant issues that usually you and your partner insane? You’re not alone. Read about the funny things that other couples squabble over.

Arguments can really put a strain on any relationship. A married couple may profess endless love for each other, but at the end of the day, there’s still a string of attributes that may grind on each other’s very last nerve.

Here’s what some of our readers have to say when asked about the weird things they might end up fighting about in their households.

Chew Siew Fong:

Not listening when I’m talking to him!

BJU Mummy:

I can close my eyes to many things but one big thing I can’t agree and can’t stand—he uses his iPhone as a babysitter and allows our boy to play Facebook games without any conditions attached.

Rizona Notario Nunez:

Usually petty things, like when he feels that I am overly dominating. When I ask simple things like, “Can you please get me that?” or “Can you do this for me?” or “Clean the toilet,” etc, it’s just my way of being sweet or as one calls it in Filipino, “Lambing”.

Another thing is when I call him in the office. Not to check on him, but only to hear his voice. Then, he seems to be a different person. Lastly, there’s a saying that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Things I like to keep because I think they are useful, to him are all rubbish.

But what is number one is money matters. I know everyone agrees! There are opposites in couples for sure, one is a big spender and the other is not.

Caroline Loh:

Quarreling over who is more important to me, my parents or him.

Brian Chong:

Using the iPhone without spending time with the kids. In-law issues and attitude problems. Too stingy over stuff concerning money.

Luciana Gunawan:

The way he handle our kids, impatience and always forgetting the roads. Whoaaa!!!
