Almost perfect.  Just reverse it.

They're both infurating to a degree, but certainly Ava is more sympathetic.

Woodcock is an asshole, but he's an asshole in his own home, and he's mostly pleasant as long as you follow his rules. Ava is a passive aggressive guest with bad manners.

Everybody is an asshole if you look deep enough.
I’m always grateful when they wear it on the outside - easier to spot and deal with.

I would say that it’s become Ava's home too.
I don’t think I would call her a guest.
Hey, nice marmot!

If you own a home and get a flatmate for whatever reason, it's still your place, and your rules should prevail.

So I own my home and my wife doesn't (yet), so I should get to tell her what to do?  If I don't like a habit of hers, I just tell her to leave?  And I should do that with any guest that I invite into my home to live long term?  Sorry, but that's ridiculous.  Life doesn't work that way.

If Woodcock regards her as just a flat mate even though they are in an obvious relationship then, for me at least, he is the more distasteful person.

They don't start off by being in a romantic relationship (quite). And there are several degrees of separation between serious relationships and ownership sharing arrangements like marriage and the latest in a series of flings.

I use to think like this, now it only seems to work that way at my wife's house.
