My husband and I have been married for over 10 years now and for the most part it's been smooth sailing. We've never had to deal with the issues that face a lot of couple married for 10 years. No infidelity, no major blow ups about money, no significant differences in child-rearing philosophy, no fights about religion or politics.
Don't take that to mean that we never argue because we do. Sure, we might not fight about the big stuff but we make up for it by bickering about every single little thing that we can.
I love Jesse dearly. He's a good husband, a great father and my very best friend. He's also wrong about everything and it's my job to correct all his misconceptions.
In the past ten years we have had heated arguments over the following things:
- What the proper name for "tortillas" is.
- Whether or not Coldplay sounds the same as U2.
- If Amish people can be autistic.
- How many types of fish we should have in our fish tank.
- How much water to add to the pan when you're making sausage links.
- If it's possible to have thunder without lightening.
- If jackalopes are real or not.
- If it's ok to scream at an umpire.
Those are just a few examples. I've probably blocked some of the most ridiculous from my mind. I'm curious to know if we're alone in this. What is the stupidest, most pointless thing you have ever argued about with your significant other? And don't you think that tortillas should be called "tortillas" and not "wraps"?
Two years ago today I answered some questions about surrogacy and money and Elle thought that even her gas was cute.
Three years ago today I was scared of a toy.
Four years ago today Elle always wanted me to expose myself.
