OK! magazine claims Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are having typical marital issues. A source tells the magazine, “It bugs Blake when Gwen decides what they’re going to have for dinner without asking him because she’s mostly vegetarian and he likes his meat and potatoes. Gwen also gets on his case about leaving his stuff around the house. They even bicker over toothpaste because Blake never squeezes from the bottom! The first year is always the hardest. Still, it’s a little early to be pushing each other’s buttons all the time.”
