What’s one of the biggest arguments between you and your spouse?
Of course money is a well-known stressor in a relationship BUT let’s talk about an almost DAILY dispute…
What do you want for dinner?
Why is food such a tough decision for couples? Personally, I do most of the meal planning at my house, and when I ask for suggestions or what we need from the store—I usually get an answer like, “It doesn’t matter,” or “Whatever you want”. It drives me crazy! Sometimes I feel like I have to make all of the food decisions and sometimes I’d just love for someone else to have some input! Give me a fresh idea. Let’s shake things up. Right? I asked other people around the station—and it turns out I’m not the only one with this dispute! While mine doesn’t normally turn into an argument, it can be a little tense. How about you?
Since we’ve been cooking at home a lot more as well, I think I just suffer from boredom—we eat the same things all the time, mostly because it’s easy stuff. I am a pretty picky eater, but I like to try new recipes or shake things up sometimes. And anything I can cook easily in the crockpot makes it even better!
The same thing can happen when deciding on a restaurant (although we don’t go out near as much these days). “Where do you want to go for dinner?”…. “It doesn’t matter/I don’t care.” For me… it’s going to be either Mexican food or Chick-fil-a. If you don’t want one of those, don’t ask me to pick!
So I see it as, I’m fairly easy to please when it comes to dining out… it’s at home that I struggle. What is the biggest argument you and your spouse deal with?
