Oh, you are so funny! "Find something wrong with me! Find it!" You reminded me of the play Italian American Reconciliation
by J. Patrick Shanley. One of the main characters is a woman who can't stand how much her husband is so nice to her, puts her on a pedestal and idolizes her, she goes out of her way for him to see she's just a normal human being - she locks him out of the bedroom, poisons him, and finally shoots his dog!
