Barbie: She looks like a vampire, screams like a gull, and tromps like a Marine!
You shouldn't love someone despite their faults, you should love them because of said faults. Being able to forgive a good many shortcomings is certainly helpful, but if you don't find them at times endearing in your partner, then why stay with 'em? In this sonnet Shakespeare lists all the things that his lady is not. She's not as radiant as the sun, her lips are extremely pale, she's got a tan, and she sounds like a twisted barbie doll when he writes that she has wires coming out of her head! There's nothing like listening to nails on a chalkboard though when Shakespeare writes, "I love to hear her speak, yet will I know that music hath a far more pleasing sound." Wonder what it was like when she nagged him. However, despite all of these failures/shortcomings on his lady's part, Shakespeare still loves her as he writes, "And yet, by heaven I think my love as rare as any she belied with false compare." Maybe he liked her tromping around, pale facade, and raspy voice. It's not like everyone had a daily bath back then!
