At least, that's how it's been for me. There were few things that niggled me about my husband, but I'd give anything to have him around to put one more thing away where it didn't belong or ask me to cut his hair and then listen to him complain that I hadn't done it quite right.

If you can put it in that light, I imagine bearing up under his weaknesses will become more tolerable.
That's pretty good advice. The key is to choose to look at the positives and appreciate those.
