    What are the biggest things you and your spouse disagree on? Does it cause serious problems?

    In a concrete sense, housework.
    She works part time, I work full time.
    She's extremely house proud, whereas I would prioritize other things over housework.

    It does cause serious problems, which makes sense to my wife.

    I think Pacific Rim is a boring movie, he doesn't.

    The thermostat setting, I prefer a temperature setting of 70 degrees and her preferred temperature is 67 degrees.

    I once jokingly told her she should move to Minnesota and I'll move to Arizona, she was rather not amused by my humor.

    We've come to an agreeable compromise setting at 69. :D

    Wow!! That must be a pretty serious test on a relationship!!

    I know a good divorce attorney if you need one. Actually I know a few (because I used all of them)...

    Somehow we're able to muddle through. It took some intensive therapy of watching better other movies together to reaffirm we have some common ground. :)

    I'm not married currently, but my girlfriend and I disagree on a lot of stuffs.
    For example, she thinks that bacon wrapped chocolate dipped bacon with a chocolate garnish is unhealthy!:mad: Just look at @Revoltingest! He's still breathing!

    On a more serious note, she's a big fan of Trump, I'm not. She thinks that the Star Wars prequels were horrible, I think that they're just average. She likes the house boiling hot, I like it at sub-zero temperatures. That's just a couple o' things, too.

    In seriousness we have this issue too. I work 'part time' but it's a physically demanding job and keeping a house clean is also physically demanding (and a full time job in its own rite). My husband washes and clothes but he doesn't know how to stack dishes anything but precariously and he can't fold to save his life. And probably will never learn. It's just something I've had to deal with. Along with his sometimes poor movie tastes. xD

    Hmmm. Do lovemuffin and I disagree on anything? Nothing serious. He likes election projections and I think they shouldn't call a close race until all ballots are actually counted. That's all I can think of.

    Well, we do disagree on religion.
    It has caused a few arguments, some of them heated, but we have both been accommodating to each other.
    We've decided that our love and friendship take priority no matter what.

    Nice!

    I think the toilet paper roll should unroll from the front side. She likes it to unroll from the backside.
    I think you should saueeze the toothpaste tube from the bottom. She squeezes it in the middle.

    We often have disagreements over supremly important matters such as these.

    We didn't use to but now we disagree on politics. We both were GOP but I became Democrat a few years ago. It doesn't cause major problems, just annoying discussions.
