do you have differences like this
one loves the heat really high
the other loves the windows open
one loves noise blaring from everywhere really loud
the other really needs quiet
how do you work around this
someone suggested to get wireless headphones re tv if one regularly wants noise and one regularly wants quiet.
some can have rooms that have doors to close
What do you do .

My DH and I are pretty similar, so I'm afraid I don't have any suggestions as to how to deal with that ( besides spending time apart - jokes!)....the wireless headphones sound like a good idea, but pricey.

I have a single doona on my side of the bed. He has to deal with the fact that I have the heater on in winter, he can wear shorts and t-shirt. I have to endure football constantly, he has to endure my hideous piano playing! It's all just give and take.

DH usually lets me go with whatever I prefer...I'm really not sure what he likes (when it comes to windows open etc)...he does like to have the TV up louder than I do. I usually turn it down if its annoying me!

This is how it works in our house. I have my bedroom with my own bed and bedding, my own tv and my own air conditioning and my hubby has his own bedroom with all the same and he has a giant tv he watches in the living room
No fights over what to watch, waking each other up in bed or one being hot whilst the other is cold. I know it's not the norm but it works for us

DF and I have differences but we compromise. That's life.

Yes we do have differences exactly like this! He works 6 days a week so its usually only one day a week I have to deal with bad 70s rock music and /or talk back radio with ads......
Last summer I used to sit on the couch with my winter dressing gown on, whilst he had the air con blaring. I made him move the vents so at least it wasn't blowing icy air on the back of my neck!
I believe it's called The Art Of Compromise and is the backbone of a successful marriage
or as Iike to call it The Art Of Grinning And Bearing It hehe

Yes. It is really hard. My DP hates any kind of breeze, fan, aircon or open window. ANY month of the year. e.g 40 degree perth summer. It is torture. We have learnt to compromise. I have a small fan on me he just has to put up with it otherwise it is unbearable.
He likes the radio on to sleep. Talk back radio. I can't stand it because I half listen to it and then the diaglogue finds its way into my dreams. Before I know it I am having a full on dream sequence about Bob from Baldivis and the problem he is having with his tomatoes.
I sometimes think separate bedrooms would be heaven!!!!!
