    Re: Cohabitating is a nightmare

    My ex-wife didn't like our all-white, late-1990s (and earlier) appliances. They weren't "modern" stainless steel. I said, "So what? They still work."

    She'd complain about me leaving tools out while I was still actively working on household repairs.

    She would move my stuff, or worse, (mis)use it without asking. Like when she "borrowed" my large water pump pliers and left them in the lawn outside.

    She didn't like the stained wood trim. Said it looks "dated." Wanted to paint it. I like seeing the character of the wood.

    She managed to spend so much money on random, small items that I had to worry about whether I'd have enough money for gas to commute.

    Since she was no longer putting out (at least not for me, as I later learned) so what did I get out of the deal? Nothing but hassle.

    Re: Cohabitating is a nightmare

    I'm glad I don't have a woman leaving lawnmower mines buried in grass! With a 1969 gravely mower, those water pump plyers become lethal projectiles!
    In the beginning, it only ate men, now it's coming for the women and children, and nothing can stop it.

    So funny. I keep a few small garden tools inside my back door rather than tucked away downstairs in their "proper" place. I keep a few screwdrivers in a spot on the kitchen counter roughly central to the house. I keep a hand trowel on both front and back porches, handy for digging out any weed that dares present itself on my lawn.

    I don't need to have everything always put away in some proper place. I like facility and utility, and having no one to be fussy over this.

    Jesus, I swear we could have been married to the same woman....I also share your taste for natural wood and desire not to replace things that still work - but I suspect that is common among MGTOW...any of my blue pill shackled and shacked-up friends/family have paint/drywall everywhere and new stuff every few years regardless of whether it was necessary (they have to keep the wife happy)...it's just pathetic frankly.
