If you and your partner have a pet together, then you know all of the little arguments that come with that. You absolutely love your fluff ball, but she does trigger quite a few disputes around the house—perhaps because you feel so loving and protective towards her. Caring for a pet together is kind of like practice for caring for a child. It’s definitely a good idea for a couple to care for some living thing, together, before diving directly into true parenthood. You can see how you manage all of the important decisions that come with tending to the physical and emotional wellbeing of a living, breathing being. You may surprise yourselves, in good ways and bad. Here are pet-ownership fights many couples have.
