I firmly believe that DIY home projects should not be attempted by married or otherwise committed couples.
Such tasks can be as simple as assembling a particleboard bookcase, or as painstaking as papering bathroom walls. The trouble comes when both partners believe there is only one way to perform the job, their way. Everyone wants to be in charge, but no one wants to be told what to do.
Tempers flare, nerves fray, feelings get hurt, and possibly, tears shed. That’s just in the first five minutes.
Keep your romance alive. When there is a job to do, hire professionals.
