Picky people. We all complain about them, But if we're honest, we're all picky. Coming from a couple who can spend an hour deciding where we want to order a pizza from, we can definitely testify to that.
Pickiness can occur anywhere, anytime. The supermarket is an especially fun place to discover your spouse's picky nature. What brand of salsa? What kind of t.p.? If you want a moment for yourself, just enter the vegetable aisle (he'll disappear, guaranteed).
Of course you are picky about certain things. You want YOUR toothpaste, YOUR shampoo, YOUR carrots (fresh only!) You want the bed made up a certain way. You want the towels folded with the corners tucked IN (otherwise it's tacky).
Picky about how time is spent and where. And this is an area we're really learning to be careful about. If not, you and him end up wasting an entire day arguing over everything and accomplishing nothing. So you learn to pick your battles. And he learns as well.
Picky about space. We share a closet and bathroom but there's HIS side and then there's YOUR side. Respecting boundaries is key to a harmonious relationship. Just because we're married and share everything doesn't mean courtesy goes out the window. A big complaint about marriage is that people say how they are taken for granted and the courtesy and consideration shown other people (even complete strangers) is lost. So learn to say 'please' 'thank you' 'I'm sorry' 'I appreciate you'. It's easy being kind to people I work with, know on a friendly level or am just acquanted with. It's tougher being kind to I married 24/7. But worth it.
Pickiness. It's definitely an issue in marriage and in life. But before you complain too much about it, remember this-that picky individual picked you. And you picked them. So that's a plus.
