Marriage can be difficult enough without the added stress of a shared bathroom. The bathroom can be the hill upon which the marriage war is either won or lost. It's such a personal space, and if your bathroom habits are different from your (messy, inconsiderate, raised-in-a-barn) spouse, real trouble can arise.
Enter this list of rules one husband taped to the bathroom mirror for his wife. This guy took the time to express his views on the bathroom situation with his wife, who is (sorry) an absolute slob, at least when it comes to this one room. He complained of suffering from "Bathroom Surprise Anxiety," never knowing in exactly what state (of affairs, not of the country) he'd find it.
He decided to make a list of rules, specifying where things should be put and how covers can go back on things after they've been taken off.
The list of rules contains simple requests, like that his wife put the cap back on the toothpaste and pick the towels up off the floor. He ends it with, "I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH - PLEASE CHANGE BATHROOM HABITS," so clearly it's all done out of the need for a tidier bathroom and not out of spite.
Some people on Facebook took the husband's side in the matter.
But other people felt that the husband here was a bit of a coward by leaving a note instead of addressing this with his wife face to face.
But she's not angry. Speaking with ABC, Kath Rose, the woman who received this note from her husband, said she took it in good faith. Rose explained, "It's more a written warning, and I can put my hand on my heart and say it's my first written warning from my current husband. I'd like to think it's my first and final."
Love comes in all shapes and sizes, and it sometimes can be found in a letter that one partner writes to another in hopes of keeping the bathroom from becoming a warzone.
