Hubby and I are both easy going people when it comes to certain things and we generally agree on most points. But there’s one thing we have been arguing about in our 11 years of marriage – the temperature of the house! I know I’m not the only one who can relate to this argument.

Thankfully in recent years of our marriage, we’ve both given a little on this issue.  But I’m not kidding, I remember some serious shouting matches about what degree we had the thermometer set to.  I’d be freezing my butt off and hubby would be sweating.

According to this infographic from Honeywell, 26% of couples argue about the temperature in their house! And 64% of women keep the temperature higher than their male counterparts.  Surprised?
