I was curious how couples "fight" and what resolution is found. We argue about things that at times are mundane. She point out to me something that is not put away, "who left the cup on the counter" , it's just the two of us, do you really want an answer... Than it starts. My usual reply is give me a verb! Although I know the answe. After all these years tell me what you want when an explanation is not what you want. I'm the one who ends it either by noting that I'm not going any further. Do the task and for about the next hour or three quiet. Any stories to tell? May come up with more as this progresses.
