I think the biggest shortcoming for my husband is he is very careless. Sometimes I am like his secretary and I have to remind him of many things. Even if he will forget to bring the wallet, mobile phone and keys outside. One day he went out to buy some eggs but returned with empty hands. As he forgot to bring the wallet:) So I have to keep to remind him again and again.

Hello youless!:-) I hope you and your family is well! Hmmm, could it be that your husband intentionally forgets things so that he could enjoy lovely reminders from you? I am presenting this possibility because I sometimes do it intentionally myself!:-) don't tell my wife! I so appreciate and love when she reminds me in her own lovely style. Well, about my wife's shortcoming...I think that in her presence I tend to forget about problems surrounding me, but later when I recall that I had other things to ponder and do, I have to catch up. Other is that, I can not keep track of time when I am talking to her and seeing her on cam such that I miss other important things that I had planned to do.

Nice to see your responses again. Sometimes I miss you because I seldom see you have posts here for some time. Perhaps you are very busy. I don't think my husband enjoy I remind him. Especially when he wakes up and leaves, I always say to him in the bed and I tease him I am just talking when I have a dream:)

Hello dear youless. It so happens that I have the same shortcomings like your hubby has. My wife is always the one to help me find things that I have to look for. I appreciate my wife very much and I don't see shortcomings from her, except that she is not talkative like me. hehehe.

I gues you are a teacher. My dad was a teacher before, and I think this is why he is so talkative:) Perhaps many men envy you that you have a wife that is not so talkative. Do you know men don't like hearing their wives to keep talking all the time?:) Oh, your post is 5121 now:)

Hello dear youless. Thanks so much for your response and your guess is right. If you go through my old discussions, you would know more of me. Yes, I am shooting my posts these days as I am still having my rest. I still have two more days' rest and I am sure that my posts will reach another one or two hundred or so. Days off is the best time for me to shoot my posts in a fast way. I am happy that I am now closer to yours. I hope to see mine next to yours soon in another week. Wait for me, hehehehehe. lol. Happy racing.

The shortcoming of my husband is his anger. His short temper makes me go into depressions some times. But by heart he is a good person and forgets his shoutings immediately.

It is not easy to control the temper. Sometimes I will lose a temper. Perhaps after we grow a little bit older, then we will have a good temper:)

My husband's good qualities so far outweigh his bad ones that I don't really consider the few annoying things he does to be shortcomings. He used to be a hot head when he was younger and that was annoying but now he is kind and patient more often than not. I think you are describing the typical absent minded professor there, but I don't think those are such bad shortcomings. The only time my husband borrowed my car to drive to work and then forgot and took the bus home, I rode the bus back with him to work and we met a colleague on the bus, too, and we asked him why he was riding the bus in the wrong direction and he said he had borrowed HIS wife's car that day and left it in the parking lot and took the bus home. I couldn't believe it! These two were professors in the same department at the same college! He was so embarrassed and then he asked my husband why HE was taking the bus the wrong way and when we told him we all laughed so hard I thought they would kick us off the bus.

My hubbys short comings are.... he is a control freak. He has to have the control over everything that happens in the house and when I leave the house. He says I dont tell you what to do but for instance... If I decide to go to Walmart with my son at 9:00 pm then hes upset because we didnt go earlier. But if he wants to leave and go to the store at that time its no big deal to him.I dont have a fulltime job so when he really wants to be controlling he will get upset because I might give one of MY older kids a ride somewhere or my sister and he has tho throw in them jabs " I pay for the gas " We are supposed to be a couple.We have been married together for almost 10yrs. Hes the one that wanted me to not get a job all this time. That comment is very hurtful to me. He also is VERY JEALOUS of MY oldest daughter. This creates tension between us alot.He wants all of my attention. Sometime it pushes me away the way he acts about my daughter.He knows when I have had enough because I will let him know then he gets mopey for few days. He ALWAYS thinks hes right even when hes not. He treats me like I am 12 sometimes and I have to have his permission. I left my daddys house a long time ago. I dont need another one.

My partner is just so negative sometimes. I love her and try to help her look on the bright side but it's pretty hard sometimes. She also has a quick tongue and quicker wit. That is a double edged sword because it can be good and bad.

My partner just has a temper sometimes. That I think is the biggest issue because it can often get a lot of other people frustrated with her even if I keep my cool and just let her have at it.

Being careless isn't bad all the time. As he will be easy to forget your mistake, too:)

My husband is not domesticated period. He doesn't clean or pick up after himself and is often lazy. Some would say why the hell I married him if he's that lazy. I have just realised he is not domesticated and have accepted it :) I suppose we cant be all perfect haha!

My husband said I am the laziest woman in the world:) He accepts it anyway, so I think it is also very kind and generous of you:)

My husband's is that he really takes it beyond a point when he is angry at someone. He rants and rants and gets all of us worked up(even when the person he is angry at isn't around). If only got rid of that aspect. It's so irritating and puts us all off track and doesn't let us enjoy the moment.
