Marriages are made in heaven and so are thunder and lightning. Well, couples are made to argue and fight over things because life without disagreements is boring. Moreover, when two different people come together, there will be differences in opinion which eventually leads to arguments among the two. As long as these don t hamper the relation, little fights are perfectly alright. Here are some regular arguments every couple has besides who has control over the remote:

In-laws: Whether it s the man or the woman, both may be uncomfortable around in-laws. Just like he hates her mom coming over and planning sleep-overs with the daughter, she hates his mom when she comes for the annual inspection for the house and the way her son is treated. These are the 5 people who are ruining your marriage.
