At some point you do a weigh-in, and see if the positive is greater than the negative enough that you can't do without the positive. There are certain traits of my wife that I flat out HATE. BUT, there are far more that I wouldn't want to do without in my daily life.

My dad, who will turn 80 later this year, met his new bride on Tinder They differ in age by less than a decade, although I don't know the exact difference.
