RNN, bro.

Should we now discuss whether that parrot is dead or not?

We argue infrequently, which on it's face is a good thing. My only reason to hesitate is that we might not be developing appropriate skills in arguing which could make later arguments worse.

Multiple.

If you both want something different for dinner, and you talk about it for 5 minutes, and one of you gets angry/frustrated/snippy/ or annoyed, then it seems like an argument.
See, we have intellectual arguments all the time. We do get quite heated about it, but it's not personal, per se. I mean, I don't take his opinion on Mayan technology personally, but I thought he was wrong about the significance of a base-20 system. And yes, we did end up yelling at each other.

That happens quite a bit, because we're both oldest children who read a lot and we are used to being "right" about everything.

I think those count as arguments, being heated means being emotional, which means it matters.

I think it probably originated with a sandal and not slipper wearing society.
