Why Do We Fight?

Mark is my husband. I love him more than anything. But sometimes like all married couples, we get in fights. It's usually about stupid stuff.

The biggest fight we've ever had we were headed to Dallas to visit Mandy and Victor. We'd just gotten on I-35 right outside of Austin. I won't go into specifics, but in general the fight was about documentary filmmaking. This is a fight we've had over and over again. This time it got out of control. I was fuming, he was fuming. I screamed (and I mean SCREAMED) at him. I never scream. Like ever. I think my exact words were, "F%^$ you, you arrogant F$#%$". It was stupid and petty, but we were silent for the rest of the 3 hour trip to Dallas. Probably the most tense, horrible time we've had together and over something really dumb. Here are other stupid things we fight about:

**Things we fight about the most.
