Seattle, WA asked in Divorce for Oregon

Q: I'm in oregon Does an argument constitute as a hostile living environment?

So my wife came in and demanded our kids car seats. She was taking the girls but likes to inform me at the moment she leaves instead of talking about it ahead of time so we both know. I said why where are you going? She said that's none of your business she then got pissy and said go get the damn car seats louder I said go calm down and then I will go get the car seats that pissed her off so we get into an argument and I end up going and getting the car seats in which she calls me a piece of you know what. So now she uses this as an excuse to move out she decides to say that I'm creating a hostile living condition because of that and I've asked her a few times to help with food for our kids or if she will split living expenses and cleaning and she doesn't help split living expenses or even clean stating she works all the time and doesn't make messes so she pretty much doesn't clean. We have two kids together Have I created a hostile living environment? It does not make sense at all

A: You are describing a domestic argument with your spouse not a legal question. Sounds like your marriage could benefit from marriage counseling. If you and your wife end up getting a divorce, then you will have legal issues and you will need to contact a lawyer.
