I believe it’s seriously hard to be with someone over a long phase of time without running into some complications; however obviously, all the people have personal opinions and differences in how they see the world… Unfortunately, when you are trapped in an apartment with somebody day after day for 50 years these bumps can absolutely start to bother you.
I realized this the taxing way a few years into my marriage.
I was absolutely sleepy when my spouse decided that he was a capable handyman when he really had no mechanical skills whatsoever, then he was always starting home projects that he could not finish. Eventually, his interest transitioned to the central heating, cooling, and air quality control system. He started fiddling with the a/c device every time I wasn’t paying attention. If I turned my back he was likely to run downstairs and start messing with the precious forced air gas furnace… Sporadically I even found him trying to take the temperature control apart as if he could recode the smart iPad-like processor contained in our temperature control unit. It took me a while to understand where this new air quality control obsession was coming from, and then I checked his YouTube history. It was instantly apparent that my spouse was watching too many DIY heating, ventilation and A/C repair videos online. Every time he saw a new clip about an a/c device or a forced air gas furnace he could not help however try his hand at the new technique. At this point, our air quality has greatly declined thanks to all his “handiwork.” I have also banned my spouse from watching any of these home DIY YouTube videos for the rest of his life.
