For instance if one person is neater or more cleaner than the other it is important for the person who is not as neat to make sure their mate does not become their parent when it comes to keeping things titty around the house. Being reminded what to do over and over can take a toll. But taking the time to pick up after ones self is definitely a way to keep a relationship like this on the right track.
