Ok – so after I posted this thread the other day:
I came to realize that “cleaning” is one of the most prominant arguments most of us have with our SO…so I am curious now maybe I’ll get a broader range with the poll…lol who in your household is the clean-freak and who is messy?…
just havin’ some fun. 🙂

I take after my mother so I am the clean freak of the house. My parent’s house is so clean that they get compliments on how white the carpeting is. I don’t think that SO is a slob, he just lets things lay where they are rather than putting them back in their place.

FI was a total cleanfreak when we met, but i’ve worn him down over the years and taught him my messy ways 🙂
we go in waves these days actually, sometimes i’m more clean-conscious and sometimes he is. it works well for us.

My fiance is just as clean as I am. THANK GOODNESS. I’d go crazy living with someone sloppy!

He is the clean one and I love it. I have a clean house without having to clean it myself. I sometimes feel guilty about it, but he has told me that he knew what he was getting with me and he was ok with that.
EDIT: We are both CLEAN. I don’t let dirty dishes sit out or let things get dusty or fail to wipe up toothpaste in the bathroom. But he is NEAT and I am MESSY. He has FILES and I have PILES.

@pb and j: Similar story here. When I met my husband, he kept our house (his house then) clean. Ever since I moved in 2 1/2 years ago, it hasn’t been the same. I feel bad that I’ve passed on my messy ways, too!
My husband and I are making an effort to keep a cleaner house now!!!
