Taming of the Shrew!

In any relationship, we find some faults in our Significant Other. Do you think it is okay to change or correct those faults to conform to your own liking? For example, your partner may drive too fast or they smoke too much (which is bad for your health) or perhaps they always use bad language around other people.

I am thinking that this question is more about imparting a change in your SO whether they want to or not. Do you think this is being too critical and presumptions on your part?

I think it is human nature. However, you should accept them the way they are--and they should do the same for you.

I think it's good to encourage your partner to drive slower and stop smoking. This has nothing to do with accepting who they are. It will contribute to their well being.

From a very selfish point of view, you want to be with a companion that will be reliable and stable for years to come. Stop them from smoking or fast driving can potentially help them live longer.

Now asking them to take off socks in bed is another story
