So guys, and even gals, when was the first time you volunteered/had to sleep on the couch because of a fight? I thought of this topic at two in the morning after I had been demoted to the couch. We had a fight about trust issues and apparent selfishness on my end and I'm on the couch tonight. I made the mistake of checking her texts and read a "plant" that her and a friend had set to give me a lesson. I made the mistake of reading her texts and mistrusting her for the content of the message (it had said a doc's appt. for the baby wasn't a blood test but an ultrasound, and I want to be there for the ultrasound). The worst part is that I actually do trust her and only asked her about the message without making an accusation; I didn't realize that I was still admitting mistrust. Stupid me. I didn't even know that I wasn't trusting her. Point being, though, that I'm sleeping on the couch tonight for the first time. We've been officially married for three months. What is your story/time frame?
