Everybody knows that the biggest thing couples fight about is money, right?
More than half of married couples blame their in-laws for being the cause of their arguments, according to a survey of 2,000 Brits.
The top reasons for tension include in-laws giving unwanted opinions, partners taking their parents' side, and disagreements over how to discipline grandchildren.
Almost a third of those surveyed described their in-laws as 'interfering'; and on average said their partners' parents caused conflict once a month.
One in five say their in-laws were responsible for a lack of privacy in their own marriage and 36 per cent revealed they have made up excuses or made other plans when they know their in-laws were coming to visit.
Maybe forgetting to take the trash out isn't such a big deal, now.
