My pet peeve is that here I am trying so hard to change my lifestyle and eat healthier and exercise, while my husband eats gobs and gobs of junk without a care, right in front of my face, and he's one of those people who is naturally thin plus he does manual labor at work, so he will never gain an ounce. I know the bad food will catch up to him eventually, but man it's not fair. He won't even let me buy wheat bread because it goes bad before I eat the whole loaf, even if I freeze half, and he refuses to eat it.

Sometimes, I think it helps to be able to vent to others the things that irate you about your spouse, but it's a reminder also to let you remember that despite those things that we love them, and EVERY couple has those little things that drive each of them crazy. Like right now, my hubby has this streak going of waking me up a lot throughout the night. I'm struggling with lack of sleep, but it's been good things that he's been waking me up for. HOWEVER, I'm TIRED.
My honey is great BUT...he NEVER helps around the house - he doesn't complain about the messes but he would rather walk over a pile of toys than pick them up. He does wash his own dish but won't do the 2 or 3 in the sink. Oh and he snores like a bear! I love him though - he works hard and he loves me passionately..
My husband gives long answers to questions too. I love my husband to pieces and definitely wouldn't change anything about him, including the pet peeves. However, it's nice to hear that I'm not alone with having mine (as my husband is sure to say he has some about me as well!!)
I won't go into my pet peeves because I don't have many and don't want to concentrate on them. DH feels that I am too "hard on equipment" -- clank pots and pans, etc. and he thinks that I waste food, soap, etc. I am working on not wasting food -- keeping leftovers and finding creative ways to use them. But, I think the other complaint is too minor to worry about.
I am asking this because every couple has them, and some people don't realize the little things that really do bother their spouse to pieces. (I'm very blessed with a husband is quick to tell me everything on his mind, and I return the favor. However, a lot of marriages lack that.) My pet peeve with him, is that he likes to procrastinate on doing things, and yet, he has the nerve to pick on me about doing the same thing. He can dish out a lot of things, but not take it in return.
