5. The Clean Freak

The only thing worse than a slob might be the Clean Freak. Incessantly cleaning — or demanding that you incessantly clean — is not going to fly. This is where you both need to compromise. If the Clean Freak insists on having the common area absolutely clean, set up a reasonable schedule. No need to bust out an old toothbrush to scrub the floors.
