Couples face different situations, and some of them are meaningless and ridiculous indeed. Here is what you should avoid fighting over:
1. You cannot decide who is throwing out the garbage today.
If you cannot solve such a meaningless problem, it means you are not meant to be with each other. Couples who live together and start building a long-term relationship would never fight over such things. If there is garbage to be thrown out, do it. And clean your place for you first of all. Respect yourself and live in a clean apartment or house. Do not wait for your partner clean the mess. If only one of you cleans the place and the other one ignores the effort and all this lasts for too long, talk to each other and explain what you need and want. If the problem is still there, you might need to leave each other since living in hell is no option at all.
