My wife and I have been married just about eight years the five years we dated give us a total of thirteen years together) and to this day we fight about the same stuff. Nothing major just stuff like "your parents drive me crazy" "we are spending too much money" "balh blah blah, yadda yadda yadda".

I think the best advice one can get, or give, on the subject of marraige is that people don't, won't or can't change, so don't try and force them to. The best you can do is accept them for what they are and hope they do the same for you. I think, in a very lame way, that was what the author was trying to say. Thankfully, my wife heeds that type of advice, because man am I a pain in the @## to live with.

Just my thought on the subject.
