The Top Five Things Married Couples Fight About

Do you agree?

October 9, 2019

All couples get into some type of argument during their relationship, it's bound to happen. But what do most couples argue about?

A relationship app called Lasting surveyed 75,000 married couples and found the top five things couples fight about. See what you think, are these the most common arguments in your house?


1.  Chores-  Experts say the best way to avoid that one is to just split them up 50/50 or as close to it as possible.

2.  What the definition of "Clean" is-  Men and women don't always agree on this apparently.  Does it mean no dirt or no clutter?  

3.  Frequency of Intimacy-  Experts say not to put too much pressure on it.  According to Bustle, around 25% of couples are intimate once a week.  However, research shows most married couples are intimate only 1-3 times a month.

4.  Stay off your phone- If using your phone too much is an issue, it's important to set boundaries and agree on limits.  For example, a rule of no phones at the dinner table or in bed might be a good idea and if you make the rule, stick to it.

5.  Spending money-  Major purchases should always be discussed.  If you don't agree on what a "major" purchase is, just be specific.  Set an amount like $100 ahead of time.  Then talk about any purchases that are over that limit.
