DH and I don't exactly have the best track record for working together on projects around the house. Putting up blinds, painting walls and patching drywall could land us in divorce court infinitely more easily than an affair or financial issues ever could. We're able to work well in almost every other area of our lives, but put a hammer or screwdriver in our hands and suddenly communication breaks down and becomes a series of grunts and irritated sighs.

We butt heads. We're too much alike. We both are take-charge kind of people.

To surmount this marital obstacle, we usually delegate projects and only work on things jointly that are simply impossible to do alone. However, after almost 12 years of marriage, we may have finally conquered our territorial leanings.

We repaired the duct work in our attic.....ourselves....together...without a single argument....with nary a bad mood.

We have either evolved, or simply gotten too old to care about fighting.
