What Other Couples Fight About

Here's a stat that will probably make you feel better about your relationship: The average couple argues a whopping 312 times a year, according to a recent study of 3,000 people in the UK. The research left us shaking our heads (that's six fights a week!) and hoping it also means the average couple has make-up sex 312 times a year.
And the most common cause of disputes among boyfriends and girlfriends: cleanliness. Many of the battles started out as tiffs about clogging the shower drain with hair, leaving out dirty mugs, and not flushing (seriously, people?). Here's the full list of triggers, based on the survey by BetterBathrooms.com as reported in The Daily Mail.

2. Dirty marks in the toilet
3. Flicking TV channels
4. Not replacing the toilet roll
5. Leaving the seat up
6. Leaving lights on
7. Leaving dirty cups around the house
8. Leaving wet towels on the floor/bed
9. Hoarding stuff
10. Not flushing the toilet
