    I also like this Judith Jack coil/wrap ring. It’s quite a bit smaller than the Nadri one, but I like that it is gold-plated sterling. I have developed a nickel allergy to all my old costume jewelry has to go.

    The couples arguments were interesting, but also seemed like a lot of genuinely dysfunctional couples — disagreeing over vaccinating your kids or keeping your own name was a bit heavier than I expected from the article title…

      Exactly what I thought! I complain about the fact that my partner doesn’t cash checks or pay dentist bills for months at a time, but many of the article’s disagreements would be serious red flags and/or dealbreakers for me.

      Umm yeah…! I might be particularly sensitive to this right now having just gotten out of a long-term relationship where we loved each other very much but had some of these long-term disagreements (how/when it’s appropriate to spend vs save money, how to spend time). But jeeze even the stuff we disagreed on pales in comparison to having to vaccinate your children behind your partner’s back!

      Agreed – my recurring argument is about how to fold the towels (which also carries the larger question of “does everything have to be my way and how do we make space for us to do things in our own unique way without compromising the other’s approach to it? In what situations does it not matter that the other person do things exactly how the other likes it?”)
