Aw man, much truth in that post. But they're not faults, they're character traits...
My wife's not perfect and neither am I, we both know that, and we have some deeply felt differences, but we've learned how to work around them, mostly because most of them we both recognize as trivial and on balance we'd rather be with each other than without each other. I can't clean and tidy a room to her standards, and frankly I have no clue what they are and any room looks the same to me after I've cleaned it or she's cleaned it. Apparently I can't keep the kitchen organized either, even though I know where everything belongs. The stainless steel cooking pots, for instance, belong on a particular shelf, I know that, but it seems they have to be arranged in order of size, biggest on the left, smallest on the right. I can't see that it matters, I can open the cupboard doors and see them all no matter what order they're in, and easily pick out the one I need, but it seems there's a higher level of order I don't understand. But there's no issue. If she sees that I've put things away in the "wrong" order, she just moves things around, there's no bitching.
