Yes. All the damn time. NOt about my hobby though but little things like, why didnt you pick up the phone when I was calling (Im assisting some clients), why are you 30 minutes late? (Had to finish some paperwork) How come you dont want to cuddle? (Tired from work, so last thing I need is cuddle with her while she watches an episode of ER) lol

Your problem is all Mars and Venus stuff. As absurd as it may sound, it's just the basic psychological and emotional differences between men and women manifesting themselves. Men and women value different things and attach often drastically varying interpretations to the same events. One isn't necessarily better than the other. You just have to learn how to accept what women are like and understand how they think and feel (as well as how alike/unlike your chick is to women in general), and preferably she'll do the same for you, try to understand how you express your maleness and not take it personally.
RESPONSE FROM MY BAD SIDE:
It's been my observation that women love to be angry and hurt so if you start doing what she wants, she will soon lose interest in you. Women want you to take charge in the relationship so don't try to placate her, tell her you will do whatever you damn well please and she needs to learn to accept it. Then confuse her mind by doing something nice and romantic for her. Women can't resist it when you keep them off-balance. This is why women fall for assholes: Assholes shift back and forth unpredictably between cruelty/insensitivity and compassion/romance and this combination drives most women wild. Remember the words of the wise pimp: Any man can control a woman's body, but the key is to control her mind. Just don't let her bitching and complaining get you down-it is the nature of a woman to nag and criticize and whine about everything. It has nothing to do with reality. If she is affecting your emotional state, check your self-esteem. If you are happy with yourself, her bitching will just be noise, you won't worry about it.
Hope this helps. ;)
MY GOOD SIDE AGAIN:
Do NOT under any circumstances listen to anything my bad side has to say. It will only cause more problems. I try to keep him in check, but sometimes he takes full control of my mind before I can restrain him. But he is good for comic relief if you just take everything he says as a joke...

I don't believe that two people can coexist and not disagree from time to time. I don't think human nature will allow it. The couples that I do know that don't fight are in some kind of counseling trying not to get divorced. My wife and I make our opinions know and don't really hide what we are thinking from each other. Remember to fight "fair" and not let it last till the next day, and it usually works out OK.

I am married and for the most part it has been great. With everything in the economy right now everyone is a little on edge and money fighting will always occur. I have found it is not what you say but how you say it that makes a huge difference.
I have also learned that I don't always have to throw in that last word that sparks a small disagreement into a full blown throwdown.
This is my second marriage and I think it makes me a much better husband because of things I have learned.
As far as Joes, I convinced her to find a similar hobby that she can enjoy too so she doesn't feel left out. That has worked the best. She is a great girl though and is super cool to hang out with.

My wife is not a huge fan of me collecting, but condones. We have never really fought, sometimes disagree. We are each other's best friends, and share a lot of interests, so we work together well. We carpool, watch TV together, e-mail often during the day. She encourages me to hang with the fellas, we are tight with our families and visit each other's regularly together, love our new church. I help with the housework and she helps in the yard -- I guess it is all about sharing responsibilities and compromising. Except cooking. I can't do that.
But we just found out we are gonna be parents(!!), so I am sure fatigue will rear some frustrations soon enough. But we are thrilled!

We never fight, never argue. We established a set of rules when we hooked up.
1) whats yours is yours.
2) The money you earn is yours.
3) Bills we share we split. Her car her bill, my jeep my bill, my motorcycle my bill... our fun.
4) She has hobbies, as do I. We totally respect each others hobbies.
5) Love (saying). It's not a reflex. "I love you honey.." "I love you too!" Not allowed. We look into each others eyes and say it with meaning everytime. No matter what we are doing, we always stop to look each other in the eye.
6) Respect each other differences. Movies, music, sense of style etc.
7) When in doubt... flip a coin. or Rock, Paper, Scissors.
Always works and we have a great relationship. We can talk about anything, no secrets. We both have been through very difficult relationships so we both laid this out from the start. 3 years later... feels like the first week together.
We look at other couples in the middle of an arguement and just laugh. We don't get it at all!!
Truly, truly happy. Sick huh? lol
