Marriage often leads to roommates.
On your best of days you can overlook them missing the hamper, not putting away their belongings, or leaving dirty dishes in the sink. The fact that they read 4 books a week is endearing but leaving them all over the house becomes irritating. You breath deeply and decide to pick up the slack for a day or two until you become a ticking time bomb. You're secretly daring them to mention just one slip up you've made; you have all your artillery on hand, just waiting to pounce. If left unchecked feelings of resentment can begin to bubble to the surface. You've worked so hard to keep the house in order, you've cooked meals, and washed clothes...you're proud of all that you were able to accomplish in your waking hours. You are shocked that your roommate wouldn't see what a sacrifice you've made to keep things in 'tip top shape'.
