There’s no such thing as the perfect couple; every couple fights, argues and deals with stress in their relationship. There are always moments in every relationship that are less than perfect. However, most couples prefer to keep their troubles private, which is exactly how it should be. This habit, however, leads many to believe that the perfect couple does exist and that relationships are perfect. It’s not a good mindset for anyone to have because it’s never going to happen. Whether or you see it or not, there are a few big things that cause rocky moments in all relationships. Read on to see what couples are really arguing about in their relationships – whether you know it or not.


It’s the number one reason couples argue. Finances are a touchy subject, whether they’re good, bad or in between. Even couples who live a comfortable lifestyle argue about money in terms of spending habits, saving habits, retirement accounts, investments and so on. Others argue because they haven’t enough to go around and the stress is tearing them apart. Money is a subject that has an effect on every relationship.


Kids are notoriously difficult on marriages and relationships. My husband and I were married several years before we decided it was time to start a family and have children, and even though we planned everything to our liking, we still argue over the kids. We argue over discipline, habits (theirs and ours) and what we want for them. It’s common. Some couples, however, face other arguments over kids. There’s infertility issues, accidental pregnancies, children in trouble, illness, stepchildren and so many other issues.


Believe it or not, one of the biggest causes of arguing in marriages and relationships is compromise. It’s supposed to make things easier on couples, but it’s not always so black and white. The road to compromise is not an easy one when it comes to making big decisions such as moving, accepting a new job, leaving a job to start a new career, having kids, taking care of aging family members, the interference of other family members, and the list goes on and on. Compromise does make a relationship strong, but it also takes a lot of work and more than a few arguments to get there.
