40+ Married People Share Tweets of Their Marriage Issues

There are bound to be a few hurdles and challenges when you decide to take two lives and make them into one. Each will have to learn to live with the other’s little quirks, and this is what makes marriage such a challenging proposition. Of course, one of the biggest challenges is understanding one another and why each person does what they do. That’s why many people share their marriage experiences using the Twitter hashtag, #marriedpeopleissues — and we’ve compiled the best ones!

Midwestern Cuisine

There are definite differences in cuisine depending on where you grew up in the United States. What’s acceptable in one area would be out of the question in another – for instance, a stack of wheat thins and guacamole.

Midwestern Cuisine

We understand the inclination of this guy to shame his wife for eating this delicious dip with the wrong chip, but in the end, if it tastes good to her, why say anything at all?

Mona Lisa Smile

Like with every relationship, you get to know each other very well in a marriage. That means that you can tell when maybe that smile isn’t as genuine as you initially thought. Perhaps you can even tell what’s behind the smile…

Mona Lisa Smile

This wife is simply stating the fact that she knows he’s not being completely honest. We think it’s kind of sweet that she knows him so well, and we hope that he is not trying to cover something up that he did.

Why?

When you have a playful relationship that is built on sarcasm, this may mean that you just react in specific ways to certain situations, especially when there’s an argument involved or a heavy debate on something.

Why?

We do think it’s a little petty to Google something when you know that he’s telling the truth but we get the inclination to try to prove your point. On the other hand, at least she was honest when he asked why she felt she had to do it.

Organizational Clutter

When you look at a married couple, you’re often going to find that one of them is super organized, and the other is maybe not so much so.

Organizational Clutter

Having an organizational process can seem just as cluttered as a mess for the person who isn’t organized. We get this guy’s thought process, however, isn’t it nice to be able to find things when you’re looking for them?

You Don’t Need That

Like in a friendship, a marriage has running gags that happen throughout it. If one of you happens to be bald and has a hairdryer, you are opening yourself up for whatever jokes come your way.

You Don’t Need That

We’re not sure whether he was actually trying to waterproof his other hiking boots or just trying to come up with a good explanation as to why he was holding onto something that he has no use for.

Me Too!

It baffles us why some people in the world have to explain things to people, even when an explanation is not necessary. This often happens in everyday life, typically not so much so when you guys have a shared experience.

Me Too!

Maybe this guy just wanted to vent a little bit, and though she felt he was bothering her, he was just really trying to get his emotions out.

It Is All in Love, Right?

Many couples have cute little nicknames for each other. Loving, affectionate ones are meant to show how much they mean to each other without saying the words “I love you.” Sometimes, though, couples can do this in a little bit of an aggressive manner.

It Is All In Love, Right?

We’re not sure what was happening and why he thought that changing up what she was calling him was an act of aggression. But if he thinks it is, we’re sure that he did something that caused her to flip her switch.

Yeah?!

Like with anything, sometimes, when you’re busy, you just don’t hear everything as clearly as the other person in the relationship thinks you should. Whether that’s because they really don’t hear you, or they’re just ignoring you, that’s a whole other question.

Yeah!?

We think this guy was just trying to be a little bit funny because he knew his wife had trouble hearing out of one ear. We’re sure that by the end of this, he was sorry that he had raised his voice.

I’m Telepathic

After years and years of being together, you develop an almost telepathic relationship. Maybe telepathic is the wrong word, but you’re able to read the other person’s cues, knowing what the answer will be to questions you haven’t even asked yet.

I’m Telepathic

It seems as though a couple can’t function on holiday like that. The fact that he would even think about asking seems crazy to us.

Nice Day

Sometimes, when other people are involved in the relationship, one person gets left out in the cold. It seems that this guy was just maybe too quiet for his kids to realize that he was out there doing his yard work.

Nice Day

It was probably nice to have a day out in the sun and just do a little relaxation. After he was done, there was nothing else he could do but wait for the door to get unlocked by the next person that came home.

Keep it Tidy

There are some places in the home where remaining clean and tidy is necessary. Unfortunately, there are always those in the relationship that don’t necessarily see things the same way as you do.

Keep it Tidy

Why this guy can’t learn to refold and hang his dishtowel is beyond us. It seems that they’ve been married a long time, and it seems like it would make his life a lot easier.

Wrong Again!

No matter how hard you try, you’re never going to be able to read somebody else’s mind. There will always be things that your opinions vary on, and it seems like this guy is actually pretty sure of what his failing is.

Wrong Again!

But we have a newsflash: you can have more than one fail, and it seems that maybe he’s on the right track with both of his.

It’s the Little Things

It goes without saying that both people in the relationship bring a lot to the table. However, sometimes one person thinks that they maybe do a little bit more than the other, especially when it comes to chores around the house.

It’s The Little Things

Though accurate in his assessment, this guy seems like he’s not catching onto what she’s trying to say. We hope, for his sake, that he eventually does!

What Are You Saying?

When you’ve been married to someone for any time, there are just some places where you are super comfortable. So we don’t think that this person is necessarily saying that their significant others’ hips are dull, just that they are comfortable.

What Are You Saying?

Though maybe we’re wrong, and if so, then this could lead to a whole world of other conversations that need to be had.

Yes, I Am!

We’re sure every person in the world has heard the old adage, “what yours is mine, and what’s mine is mine.” There is no relationship where that is truer than when it happens to be a marriage.

Yes, I Am!

So it shouldn’t surprise this guy that his significant other is wearing some of his stuff. We’re sure that she picked up more than his socks! He just has to learn to live with it.

He Does What?

It’s always lovely when a couple can get out and meet each other’s friends or coworkers. It gives the couple a chance to see who their significant other spends their day with, and for those they work with, it’s a chance to get a look at what their colleague goes home to.

He Does What?

We felt better when this couple got home. There was definitely some explaining to do, as it seems like she didn’t know about the tweeting.

Ouch! That Hurts!

When you ask a question, you have to be careful not to be too alarmed by whatever the answer is. Though when you’re offering to make a big sacrifice for a relationship, you probably feel like the answer should be obvious.

Ouch! That Hurts!

If we were this woman, we’d probably be a little upset. If we were this guy, we’d probably be a little worried about sticking around with her!

Seriously!

After a couple of years of marriage, you get into a routine for arguments or disagreements. Typically, there are the same looks and actions even when the topics are different.

Seriously!

However, it seems like you get thrown a curveball every now and then. We’re sure this woman felt like there was no need to gasp anymore, as he should know what her look was saying.

You Don’t Know

When you’re a married couple, you share everything. Not only your present lives but your pasts as well. That means that your significant other knows you better than you know yourself, most of the time, even if you can’t admit that!

You Don’t Know

This woman can clearly judge who her husband was in high school based on who he is now. Plus, we’re pretty positive she has access to pictures and stories from her mother-in-law that prove her point.

I Need My Space

When you’re a couple, you learn to love the oddities of your partner. Perhaps their oddities are what drew you to them. Still, there are times when words come out of their mouths that just seem so ridiculous that you have to laugh.

I Need My Space

If we were this woman, we would have laughed so hard to hear that there was too much stuff around for her wife to play a musical instrument. Also, who plays the hornpipe?

Are You Sure?

Couples share a genuine concern for one another. When you think they have injured themselves, even if it’s something funny like kneeing themselves, you have to make sure they’re uninjured before you laugh.

Are You Sure?

This woman did a great job of doing that. We’re sure that everybody heard her laughter for several minutes once her husband said he was fine.

Keeping it Real

After being married for a while, you get to be really open and honest about the relationship itself. So wishing someone luck, instead of congratulating them, seems like the right course to be taken.

Keeping it Real

However, we do think you probably should wait until after the “I do”‘s are completed. This person actually did that, and even still, we think maybe it was a little bit too realistic of a toast.

Special Powers

We all know that moms have special powers. As a husband, you have to understand that your wife also has superhuman powers, and most of them should not be used for trivial things like refilling soap dispensers.

Special Powers

The only thing we can hope for is that the significant other in this situation catches on to the sarcasm and begins to do a few of the more minor things around the house.

Just to Clarify

It’s best to know when to let things go. Therefore, we think this guy is pretty bright for not wanting to push it too far when it came to identifying whatever plant they were talking about.

Just To Clarify

We’re sure that if he had gone one step further, he and his significant other would probably not be talking for a little bit. It could’ve even ended in a bit of an argument!

Please Stop It!

No matter what you do, and as much as you may love your significant other, there are always things that they do that drive you up the wall. Sometimes, it’s things that really shouldn’t but you, and other times, it may be things that really should.

Please Stop It!

If someone kept throwing banana peels in our bushes, we would be very, very angry. We would probably be so annoyed that someone might find themselves sleeping on the couch.

Asking for a Friend

There are moments in your relationship where asking questions could end up leading to some serious repercussions. It’s a sign of growth when you realize that one of those moments has just occurred!

Asking for a Friend

Therefore, you have to be kind of proud of this person for being able to identify by the look — or through other means — that they had made quite a big mistake.

FYI

Having routines can be a great thing in your life. It can lead to some very intimate situations, especially if we’re talking about a couple sharing a bed. So this couple who seems to sleep beside each other each night ought to have a good and healthy relationship.

FYI

That is unless he doesn’t learn from his mistake and continues to swipe her pillows in the middle of the night! If that were a sin that was to continue to happen, there would be no coffee in the morning for him!

How Alarming!

Being forgetful is not necessarily a horrible thing. That is unless it’s a constant situation, and if we were, this guy would be very annoyed with his significant other. After all, you can understand her forgetting the alarm once or twice.

How Alarming!

Doing it on multiple occasions seems to be an act of rebellion. Maybe she understands that there’s a whole process when the alarm goes off? Or maybe she doesn’t?

Old School GPS

There are times of the year when knowing where everybody is in the house is vitally important. For instance, around Christmas time, when you’re trying to sneak in gifts, or wrap them, while people are in the house.

Old School GPS

This woman, though, has a pretty sneaky idea of keeping an eye on her husband and watching for the gifts he brings in. We wonder how many women have tried this?

Stacking Up

Couples develop a unique language when they’ve been together for a long time. You can say sentences that make no sense to anyone else and get your point across quickly.

Stacking Up

That being said, it will sound like you’re crazy people! But hey, we think that’s beautiful and the whole point of having that very special bond with another soul. Or maybe it is just crazy!

Make a Decision

The truth is, when you’re dealing with two separate individuals, sometimes making decisions can be pretty challenging. That’s especially true if neither one of you wants to be the one to make the wrong decision.

Make A Decision

We can completely understand this, as nobody wants to be responsible for having an unsatisfying meal. So this argument could be kind of like the song that never ends, simply because nobody wants to be involved in the argument that never ends.

Real Purpose

One of the biggest adventures in life is finding out your real purpose. However, that’s not always the case when it comes to relationships. Some people absolutely know what their life’s purpose is.

Real Purpose

It’s really up to the significant other to figure that out. We’re glad that this person figured it out, and now they can make adjustments as needed so that they don’t go stark raving mad.

Eyeing Me

When pets are involved in a relationship, they tend to take sides. They are overly protective of their humans and almost obsessively so. It’s evident why this guy might think that’s what’s happening with the cat.

Eyeing Me

But it’s so hard to tell with cats because they always look like they’re plotting something, don’t they? Or maybe that’s just what our experience has been in the past?

Nuggets of Gold

Everybody has foods they love that they just can’t get enough of. For some, that might be a fine dining experience. For others, it might be just the good old chicken nugget from that place with the golden arches.

Nuggets of Gold

We’re glad that this woman understands her husband and what his exemplary dining routine is. It’s clear that she has captured quite the prize! And she’s not afraid to shout it from the rooftops.

No Resemblance

When a married couple has kids, there’s always talk about who they will look like. Inevitably, each of the parents wants the child to have certain qualities of their significant other’s that they find beautiful.

No Resemblance

But in a moment of weakness, this guy clearly said the wrong thing. Not only is he going to get himself in trouble, but he would get his kid in trouble, too. It seemed like everybody was going to be in the doghouse!

Scavenger Hunt

It’s Always nice when you take turns doing the chores as a couple. But some chores can lead to quite the game of hide-and-seek. One of those chores just happens to be putting the dishes away after dinner.

Scavenger Hunt

We can completely understand this person, they want just some semblance of normality when it comes to where the dishes end up after being washed! After all, the dishes go in the same place every time, so there shouldn’t be a need for a scavenger hunt to find them later.

So Spiteful!

We all have someone in our life that is super anal about how the dishes are stacked in the dishwasher. Sometimes, they are so intense that in order to get a release from all the anxiety, we do something kind of mean.

So Spiteful!

We can’t be the only ones that do this! Sometimes it’s just fun to put things in the wrong places. It might lead to some issues down the road, but it’s fun at the moment.

Earth Conscious

There are just some people that aren’t so concerned with cleanliness. Often, guys care less about this than their wives, which can lead to some pretty gross conversations and possibly a little bit of judgment.

Earth Conscious

Maybe this guy is just trying to conserve water or keep harsh chemicals out of the earth? We think it’s more likely that he just isn’t too concerned with the cleanliness of the towel.

Meme You Later

There are always little things that couples do that set them apart from others. Sometimes, it’s sending each other little love notes and sending each other lunches. Other times, it’s tagging each other in memes, apparently.

Meme You Later

Though we’re not sure why they would fight over tagging each other unless one of them was just getting a little too tired of all the memes coming in every day.

Equivalent Exchange

If you’re not familiar with the kitchen, sometimes the terminology in there could throw you off. Although this woman seems to be very annoyed with what her husband did, we can kind of understand, and we feel sympathetic for him.

Equivalent Exchange

Next time, maybe she should describe the object that he is supposed to use so he knows that he is pulling out the right thing! That way, there will be no confusion to be had.

Put it Up!

Everybody has their thing! We mean that there’s always something that people hate putting up with. For many people, it’s clothing, but for some, it’s pretty much everything. So we can understand this woman’s frustration, for sure.

Put it Up!

We think this guy should pick one thing and then try to work on making sure he gets all the others put away. This way, he protects himself from ending up in the doghouse.

Read the Signs

Even if you’re not in a relationship, you can see when there are issues with another person’s relationship. You can tell by their mannerisms – how they sit, how they stand, and even by how they walk.

Read the Signs

Suppose they’re walking hand in hand, side-by-side, then they’re probably not in the middle of an argument. However, if you see one person is clearly walking faster than the other, whoever is leading should probably be avoided.

Doing Stuff

There’s a point in every relationship where all you want to do is be near the other person. But sometimes, you have to have your time apart so that you can each enjoy your own thing.

Doing Stuff

We can understand why this woman would be annoyed about being nagged all the time. If we were her, we would stop answering too. After all, he has to entertain himself at some point, right!

Style?

You like what you like! Sometimes, you want to have as much of it as possible when you find something you like. That goes for many different things and, apparently for some, that includes a wardrobe.

Style?

Maybe somebody told this guy that it looked good on him! Or maybe that color was something that he got complimented on by his wife. Though we can understand her point of view, we also say just let him wear what he wants to wear.

So Comfy!

It’s a proven fact that your significant other’s clothes are more comfortable than your own if you can fit in them. So when you’re in a relationship, you have to be cautious so that you can hold onto those pieces of clothing that you love dearly.

So Comfy!

We think that if this girl does the laundry, she should have the right to pick up a piece of clothing, like a hoodie, and make it her own.
