This is quite an interesting topic and funny too. Glad to knw i'm not alone in this. For my hubby, he is a terrible nag n it is really debiltating since for pete's sake, dt is my supposed role and right as a woman but he does it so well dt most times i want to yank my hair off. That of course is nothing when compared to d sad fact dt he has no inhibitions telling d whole damn world on every nitty gritty details of our marriage. U knw d saying dt one shld not invite a 3rd party, well, dt's for the birds, cos as i speak we ve so progressed dt we now ve support groups wit our family as d topic. It's so sad dt i am crossing my fingers dt he stops it. I wld stop here for now. Sometimes i wish we ladies all ve the testosterone too. Maybe then, we can finally understand d guys.

He dirts up the bathroom and doesn't clean it. Oh my goodness, guys have a joystick so why can't they aim right? We are not married yet but dang is irritates me that i find pee stain around the bottom of the toilet. And don't get me started on the bathroom sink. I am not a neat freak but i hate how messy he is.

quite an interesting thread, my hussy likes putting water in his mouth and shaking it loudly each time he finish eating, it aches me to dead, he never accepts his faults always claiming to be right all the time. sometimes he wakes me late at night to demand for sex these are the habits in him that i hate i wish he could change.

¤His nagging,anywhere everywhere, anytime everytime. Ppl ask how I cope with it.

¤His shouting at the top of his voice even wen u r not quarelling. He is so loud

¤His haggling. No matter how cheap, he still haggles.

¤His holier than thou attitude

¤Plus he is as romantic as a door post.Wen he wants sex, he just tells me "I want to f**k" and he expects me to hit d sack as if I'm a sex machine.

@Seun,

You are young. So I can understand some of your comments.

@Everyone,

Over our married, I have learnt to ignore most of his bad habits. In d first few years of our marriage, I used to complain about his lack of organisation, but I realised that, it is better to compromise. I have my bad habits too.

Enjoying this thread.

Been together 9 years. Not married.

He spends decades in the bathroom while I grow old in the hallway, waxing an offkey album. At whoever's apartment,his or mine!He has this bathroom fetish and wont let anyone in there with him when he's waxing bathroomy religious. 

He never loses his cool. And I mean,never.  Believe me, that is not as cool as it sounds.It's frigging ANNOYING,is what it is. When he's mad he's sort of still and silent (incidentally,he's terribly sexy when he's angry). It pisses me off that I can't keep my cool when I'm mad and he can.   

He has never heard of the invention called a wine glass or cup,and swigs stuff straight from the can,bottle,jar or carton. OMG, so irritating!IRRITATING OOOOOOO!!!!!

He pretends he's an angel when we're with our families. He has this perfected and patented Peace Be Unto All Men smirk I swear I can kill him for.

I watch his sports to be supportive. But he likes me to watch the thing with him from beginning to end! No way am I sitting there for 90 minutes while grown men chase a leather ball about,rain or frigging shine. And it's when I do decide to sit there that they add some silly 30-minute extra time again!

i bite my nails oh, and i hope when i marry my wife wont complain, buts its a habbit that is very difficult to stop, even worse than smoking habbit,lol

but with all the post i have read in this thread, i tink men's habbits are still tolerable than the women,

a nagging wife is better left to be on the roof of the house.

Lending money to friends that never pay back

She allows seemingly unimportant things to bother her too much.

lent her friend N100 and has been grumbling that her friend hasn't paid her back after two months.

Finds it hard to 4get the money even after I gave her N1000 in place of the N100 due to her grumbling.

She claim the money was tithe for a particular gift she received.

This is someone that gets a constant 5k from me weekly just for miscellaneous/intangible needs.

But she is a very lovely angel when she is not grumbling.

By the way, what is the meaning of these expressions frequently used by nairalanders:

'Lol', 'Imao' and 'Lmao'

I've read a long list of what our wives are complaining about us. i hope they can stand it when their husbands/bobo writes their own annoying habits. Women do not have to show their attitude to be annoying, the word 'wo' in their name alone is annoying.

Laughing my Bottom off at "BOGOF" (buy one, get one free) . . in as much as i wanted to say i guess he's just being economical and all that . . i realised on the other hand that "too much of everything is bad"

Well, my dear, you'll just have to live with it and learn to love that side of him . .or even if you can't imagine "loving" it, try to accept it or else you'd only end up beating up yourself over something he doesn't even see as a problem.

My hussy likes BOGOF. When we go out shopping, if he finds anything on offer, he stays glued to it calculating the discount on it. Comparing it to its substitutes.

I get easily pissed with this, because most of the time, we don't really need these things. He just like buying them because of the discount on them.

LOLOLOLOLOL OH SO LOUD.

Mine does the same thing. We're not even married yet. When I visit him, I see clothes everywhere, even his underwear. I point to it and his excuse is "it's a boy's room"

I just hissssssss and walk away.

LOL. I will remember this when I say "I do"

If he continues in the marriage like this, I will do just that and when he has nothing left, he'll stop.

I also hate that he takes 4 hours to cook one pot of stew and rice. When am I supposed to eat. Lol, it's funny he surprised me with a date. I wasn't able to go out dancing after my accident. So he brought dinner, movie and dancing to me but at his place. This man started cooking at 3:00pm, 5:30 pm the food never done.

My mother called me to come home. I didn't taste the food till the next day.

I cannot stand when we get into an argument. He thinks he's always right. When I get angry, he'll apologise. I can't stand that he apologise when he doesn't know what he's done. What's the point of apologising? He'll do it again, and he does.

The simple truth is that a woman marries a man expecting him to change but he doesn't and a man marries a woman expecting her not to change but she does. Either way, you never know the true and complete character of a man or woman until you are married. No matter how long your courtship lasted. My people say Ile oko ile Eko ni. Matrimony is a new learning institution. So if you are in it, go on learning until you become a professor emeritus.

If you can't tolerate his domestic habits, why should you marry him? Don't marry what you can't accept!

Jennykadry, I know what you mean! I start to pick up after my hubby from the front door! Shoes, shirt, bag. My living room will turn into a dressing room if I don't.

He is so forgetful! It's "Babe remind me of this and that and that." Like my own head is empty, just waiting to fill it with his reminders.
