We’ve all been there. He does something stupid; she says something mean; he forgets an important occasion; she isn’t “in the mood” enough. If you’re married and live under the same roof as your spouse, you’ve had a few really good arguments. If you say you don’t, you’re totally lying, and that’s a bad, bad thing (Revelation 21:8).
