Move Over! I Need Some Room!

Does anyone ever talk about the arguments and disagreements couples have over getting the boat ready for cruising? I suppose they do but each family's garbage remains their own. Although there must be similarities.
Like - Can you put your stuff away, please! There is no room to leave it lying about. Stay out of this part of the boat! I need my privacy. When is it going to stop raining?
There are lots of challenges unique to boat living. And as Jay and I always say, we didn't move onto the boat to live on the boat. We moved onto the boat to go cruising.
The reality of it is that it takes a whole lot of work and a whole lot of money and every day brings a new obstacle.
Maybe I'm being frivolous when I say let's just until the lines.
After all, most all the responsibility is on Jay. It's not that I don't or can't help, but I'm not technically inclined in any manner. When things break I don't have the slightest idea how to fix them.
That being said, I can sail and I love to navigate. I can pull my weight.
We can sort this out, I'm sure. And when asked to move over, well, I'll do just that. I'll move over and make room for Jay.
