Any married couple who tells you that they never fight or bicker either hasn’t been married for long, or they’re liars. Every couple argues, especially about the funny, little things that actually don’t matter. You’ve tried to explain to your husband that it’s not polite to lick his plate clean in a restaurant, and he’s eternally concerned about your habit of leaving food in the fridge a little past the expiration date.
These arguments are bound to happen, and it’s nice to know you aren’t the only couple having those debates. That’s where Mom vs. Dad: The Not-So-Serious Guide to the Stuff We’re All Fighting About comes in to settle your debates.
