I’ve found that if my Fiance doesn’t do something the specific way I would have (like making the bed or loading the dishwasher), I just keep my mouth closed.  I like to think that the effort is good enough (even if it drives the perfectionist in me up the wall!).  

I learned early on that if I give him “tips” on how to do something, he gets frustrated and stops doing them altogether.  Haha

@LindsayMaree:  +1 – I think this is huge!

Another one for me is to NOT ‘remind’ him to squeeze all the water out of the sponge after washing dishes.  It’s such a pet peeve when water gets left in the sponge and then it gets all mildew smelling.  Now, it bugs me, but I’m happy he helps with dishes and if I don’t catch it for a secret “squeeze”, I just happily throw out the sponge! 🙂

@LindsayMaree:  I really wish I could learn to do that. 😛

I’ve also learned to not complain a lot about people or talk badly about myself (ie: I feel frumpy) because I think they tend to believe what you say!  ie: when I want us to hang out with that person I was complaining about, Darling Husband is not super excited, because I’ve been venting!).  And, if I think I’m frumpy, I certainly don’t want Darling Husband feeling that way…. I started to say ‘dang, your wife is beautiful!’ – 🙂

@oracle:  You need to get one of those suction cup baskets that stick to the side of the sink so it can drain! I HATE sponges, so gross, but he’s a sponge user so sinceawe got that I can manage
