That is very common. I could not pee well when sitting down so that was not an option for me. When standing, my stream aim was so bad there were times when it actually came out behind me! How is that even possible?!? It would run down my scrotum and fly off the bottom either onto the floor or into my shorts down around my ankles. Ridiculous.
To save our marriage,
I did three things and my wife did one:
1) I peed in the shower whenever I took a shower. 3 times a day sometimes.
2) I started peeing into a 20 oz (600ml) plastic cup that I kept on the back of the toilet. That gave me the added benefit of being able to measure (and plot) my pee volume.
3) I kept a bath towel on the floor in front of the toilet.
4) My wife always left the seat up when she was finished.
This phase will pass. I promise.
