I can relate to that: I cannot trust my partner not to get angry and I, too, tend to put on hold my criticisms whereas she’s very quick at pointing to my own defects.

This said, it seems your partner is not fully aware of what is ADHD and what it implies. As long as he does take into account, to the fullest account, the implications of this neurological disorder, there is little you can do. He should find a professional who can raise his awareness about ADHD and its implications in everyday life. You cannot do it alone, I think.
