A new study from the UK has found that an average couple has 135 tiffs a year.
According to the survey by Esure home insurance, couples spend 40 minutes a day on average arguing about household chores.
And the biggest cause of domestic dispute is leaving clothes strewn around the house, the study of 1,000 men and women found.
Almost a third of the quizzed admitted using their work as an excuse for not doing household chores, reports The Daily Express.
Mike Pickard, of esure home insurance, said: "Forgetting to take the rubbish out or making a shoddy DIY attempt may not seem like serious crimes but as the research shows, domestic chores and household responsibilities can cause arguments in even the most stable of relationships. More importantly, putting off home improvements, not fixing broken or faulty appliances, trying to conceal damage or spillages and leaving DIY jobs half-finished or poorly completed could all turn into hazards around the home and result in hefty bills and even more rowing."
