    I’m not much of a nag, but sometimes I have to remind him to get certain things done.

    He is the worst procrastinator ever! I swear. We moved in together and it took us 6 months to go get my dresser from my old place and the only reason I finally got it was because I asked him to do it for my birthday! 

    I think he just doesn’t want to deal with the hassle. My CV joint on my car is currently broken and it was recalled so we’d have to go through all that red tape and I just can’t deal with it because I have no idea how to and he does but he doesn’t wanna go through with it and get it done, like my CV joint will magically repair itself if we don’t do anything about it.

    Fiance is forgetful.  He is also a procrastinator.  Love him to death, but get a move on! 😉

    I hate nagging but telling Darling Husband once does not get it done.

    I used to nag more but have since figured out it’s just faster to do it myself. With the time I waste nagging I could be taking the trash out/packing DD’s lunch/bringing the car for an oil change. My Darling Husband is world’s biggest procrastinator.

    @KatyElle:  agreed!

    Fiance busts ass at work but at home it’s like pullng teeth to get him to help out around the house! BUT I do let up during tax season because he works 70+hrs/wk.

    I don’t nag for two reasons:

    – it’s not good for any relationship- it makes you come across like his mother not his lover

    and more importantly

    – it doesn’t work. It builds nothing but resentment.

    Luckily for me, I don’t need to. I am the procrastinator in our family. As soon as we discuss anything- he does it!

    as i tell hubby, “if you just do it the first time i say to do it – your life will be much happier”

    i seem to have beaten him into submission because he does do what i ask him quickly most of the time

    option 2 and 3 forgets and is lazy (or rather doesn’t want to)
