Remodeling home is hard on marriage
We just bought a house and there is a lot to be done. The problem is, hubby is always taking shortcuts. Noticeable ones. Every time I hear him exclaim, "well, I guess that's good enough" I shudder because I know that means it looks like crap. He is able to convince himself that things look good when they don't and it drives me crazy. I try to tell him as nicely as possible but he always thinks I'm trying to bring him down. He also doesn't like to research things, and gets upset when I do- he says I should "trust him." Do I really have to just let some things look shabby to spare his feelings? He is always so proud of himself and I hate being the bad guy, but at the same time I can't stand things looking so badly done. Thoughts?
