How many towels should a couple own?
It’s a simple question that sparked a fierce debate on Twitter this week when it was posed by a man having a disagreement with his girlfriend.
“Hello fellow adults,” a man named Abdul Dremali addressed the users of the social media platform. “My [girlfriend] and I have a question… what is the correct amount of towels to own?”

The Boston-based marketing director explained that they were seeking clarification of an actual number of towels a household of two needs, as they had “zero frame of reference”.
“I said 10 and she looked at me like I was crazy,” Abdul said.

That question was answered very matter-of-factly by New York-based journalist Yashar Ali, who gave the man specific quantities of each type of household towel.
