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?

  26. you may have an important blog right here! would you prefer to make some invite posts on
    my weblog?

  27. I do. Otherwise our heat bill would be sky high and the family would be wearing shorts in the house!

  28. I control the thermostat because I do our finances and pay bills… but I keep it cool to keep the bills low, which is why I NEED a new space heater. I have it running right now! People who know me laugh at me because I even use a space heater in August. I’m ALWAYS cold.

  29. So true!! I keep our house warm all winter long. I don’t care if I have to clip a million coupons in order to make up the extra heating $. If my husband is sweaty, he can put on some shorts!
