    What do you argue about?

    I'm in the early stages of a nice new relationship, so we're not arguing a lot right now (phew). When we do argue it tends to be about ancient history - she asks me questions about former GFs and then goes all moody about it when I reply honestly. In the past, in previous relationships, most of the time I was never really sure what I was arguing about. What about you?

    With my ex husband it was money (mine), family (his), and selfishness (mine) or untidiness (mine)... those were the big ones. With Wolf, nothing - we have an agreement to talk everything through as we both made mistakes in our previous relationships in using anger and silence as a way of dealing with stuff that a decent conversation could have solved. So far so good, but it is early days.

    this made me think of one of my fave websites:

    ^ LOL I like that website. Reminds me of the former Mrs benbaaa. We once argued about whether to squeeze the tea bag with a teaspoon or not.

    I set the phone alarm for 2.00am for the Aussie game.
    Forgot to cancel it so it goes off the next night.
    She doesn't sapeak to me for a day.

    Mate comes in from Singers, calls me around 10.30pm. I'm accused of having a gik.

    My theory is if you go over the same ground often enough she'll get bored or used to it. Then it makes cheating, oops, I meant being independent a whole lot easier.

    I don't know what we argue about. I just make it a point to argue back so she don't think I'm ever gonna be pussy whipped.

    Not sure.

    HOwever I stay angry for five minutes, she stays angry for five hours.

    I have learnt to forget quickly over the years (unless it was a serious argument)

    She is still like a child, however she is Thai so not much of a surprise there.

    Whenever I get fucking trolleyed, she is always goin' on about my trousers. Or at least that's what I think she's shouting.

    Our 'arguements' are about stupid things, normally. My wife is not good at confrontation. So when she gets mad, she really goes over board. So I can't help but laugh. At the same time I say, "Do you see how silly this is?" and then she settles down at which point I meet her half way and settle whatever the issue is, even if it IS silly (in my mind).
    Everybody needs money, that's why they call it money.

    Shortly after every single time Margret touches my computer, for any reason whatsoever, I have to spend twenty minutes trying to fix crashes, locked systems, data loses, jammed drives, bizarre re-configurations and things stuck in the keyboard. There then follows a free and frank exchange of views with, in my corner, 'It's your fault,' and, in hers, 'It's a curious statistical anomaly.'
    That's the same with all women. There should be a warning on all PC's that women shouldn't be allowed near them. Admittedly, GoW is the exception here; must be a katoey.

    Arguments? Rarley have 'em. We do have rather intense "discussions." Usually in regards to Children. She wants one "Just one little baby."
    Is she stupid or just think I am? They grow into fuckin teenagers and even worse, the 20 - 25 years old stage!
    Had this duscussion last night.
    Finally pulled out the ol', "You want a kid? Go out and find someone with time for it."

    Fuck me, at damn near 55 years old I've got, what? maybe 20 - 30 years left on this planet, I'll be damned if I'm gonna spend it raising more fuckin kids.

    Parenthood is painful, hell, excruciating joy. An experience that i feel guilty denying her, much as I appreciate her, hell, love her; maybe I should just let her go. Maybe she can find a man willing to dive into that..

    Fuckin Conversation ends in tears every damn time.

    Not much, but when she does get pissed off with me, I get the silent treatment and she furiously cleans the whole house. Absolute bliss!
    I'm not above picking an argument with her just for the silence and having my office mopped and dusted.

    We argue mainly about my driving. Whenever I am in Thailand I do all the driving (like most women, she is a crap driver ). When I am driving in my nice and safe UK style, she is forever going on, overtake him, slow down, speed up, follow that taxi (there are only 5 infront of us), watch that bike (that I cannot see because she has just put her arm in front of my face to point this out) etc...

    I am normaly very calm, but I eventualy blow up and we have a good old barny in the car.

    When I was 17-18 and a bit messed up and off my tits a lot. I used to argue with myself through her. Was very strange I would start and argument with her about a problem I was having and sort of argue with myself via proxy.

    As years pass, with my latests squeeze it seems we argue less and less, since we've learnt what ticks each other off and try not to navigate those dangerous waters.

    I've noticed that tiredness is conducive to acrimonious verbal exchanges hence during "low energy" times, silence is the rule.

    She gets back at me "over the phone" from work, since it seems she's too scared to have a face to face, a one on one confrontation.. and this pisses me off no end; I usually hang up...

    Prolly I'm mellowing with the passing of time. I used to always keep empty cardboard boxes around and when the bints set my blood on fire, I'd collect their shit and just throw their crap out the windows sending'em on their merry way! - one way only, no return tickets

    Your married to Riggers wife aswell? I don't blame you she is pretty damn sexy, but I really don't think these love triangles work out, also, why the hell do you let your wife have a small husband that's an Aussie? although he aint that small, but he does carry a nice pink handbag
