All arguments can be solved through proper communication. If your partner annoys you for things he or she has done consciously or unconsciously, approach your spouse. Talk to each other. Explain that you are offended by that act. Remember that he or she cant read minds. Dont try to keep it inside. It will corrupt you. The annoyance will grow in your heart. Dont wait for it to burst one day. As early as possible discuss the problem with your spouse.
