Either husband or wife. Vent it people! And pray your spouse never reads this forum.
My wife and I will celebrate our 25th anniversary this June. And I don't know what I'd do, or imagine my life, without her (and the kids). I wouldn't have it any other way.
But every spouse puts up with habits or quirks. I certainly know my wife does. Like having to drive me to the ER every once in awhile, knowing first aid - like putting direct pressure on a wound, CPR, "roll Daddy around till the flames go out".
So what are some of yours?
My wife is.....
- a clean freak. In fact, she doesn't clean, she STERILIZES! She could have cleaned Chernobyl up in about 2 days and never left a trace of a radioactive germ. And with three teenagers she's beating her head against the wall a lot. Since we both work, Saturday is "cleaning day". The kids dread it. The woman turns into a Marine drill Sgt. Me? I run and hide! I tell the kids it's every man for himself. And since she's your Mom (not mine) do what she says.
- a fanatic about her oral hygiene. The woman has more dental tools in our bathroom then I have out in the garage. And whether we're sitting in the bed or out in the living room watching TV, she's always flossing.
- laundry has to be folded and stored a certain way. Towels and wash clothes have to be tri-folded, and when placed in the linen closets they all must be stacked and facing in the same direction. I remember when we use to have to do that in boot camp.
- Takes forever in the bathroom. Me? I came from a military background where they gave you 15 minutes to "sh**, shower, and shave".
And to those ladies that do your nails - what's with that nail polish remover that smells/stinks up the house so bad? Gives me one terrible headache. Have you built up some sort of tolerance to it or something?
