The Mumsnet Thread On Marital Rows Will Destroy Your Faith In The Sanctity Of Marriage
Reasons for arguing include THE NINE TIMES TABLE.
Responses started vaguely reasonable:
But pretty soon we had this: "We once had a huge row about curtain ties. It got quite nasty - he called me 'stupid' and I called him 'a big fat ugly pig'."
Then: "[We] had an argument over the existence of manatees. He doesn't believe in them apparently"
"We had an argument about why ducks cross the road when their pond is on the other side."
Other reasons included an attempt to assemble a trampoline which lead to the poster's partner moving out for two days.

Ex-husband/--cock of epic proportions-- cited as an example of MY unreasonable behaviour in the divorce petition (this being the ex-husband who was a serial adulterer) that I stormed off at a James Blunt concert because I didn't agree with the queue he'd chosen. No, I didn't agree, because he was in the one for picking up tickets and WE ALREADY HAD OURS. But the intransigent bugger wouldn't listen.Even my lawyer laughed.
Ex-husband and I once rowed about who would have custody of the child we didn't have, if we got the divorce that we weren't planning. Then anyhoo. The divorce came later...
