And he’s a grown man, so she can’t MAKE him do anything. Besides, shouldn’t he WANT to do these things?

Do you find yourself in a lot of senseless arguments? Maybe you argue and fuss about the same things over and over again. Or, maybe you aren't arguing about the same things, but you're arguing with the same people. These folks know just how to push your buttons. Better yet, they dangle that bait out there in front of you, and just like a big fat hungry fish, you gobble it right up! Many times people know exactly what they are doing when they bait you into an argument. They do it for several different reasons....
