Here’s a tip for y’all in long-term relationships, after the jump.

If your significant other says something like, “I’m not trying to be difficult,” do not reply with “I’m glad it comes so naturally to you.”

That statement extended the argument significantly longer than it needed to be. And two days later I can’t even really remember what we were arguing about. This leads me to my next lesson: Don’t fight over anything not worth fighting over. Talk to your partner. It helps.
