Them staying there was ridiculous. A married couple does not live with a  former roommate when a perfectly furnished apartment is empty across the hall. But they stayed for the comedy effect that the writers were looking for. 

Sheldon's violation of his own conceived roommate agreement was numerous. It was his thing to criticize Leonard's work and his reputation as a scientist. 

As shown several times Sheldon conceived the Roommate and Relationship agreements to benefit him and him only

True. It's been proven time and again that he only thought of himself. Everyone else was an afterthought. With the possible exception of his mother and Meemaw.

About being shallow, you seem to forget one of the most shallow, which was Raj. 

How is he the most shallow one, they all are which is disappointing considered they are not conventionally perfect themselves.

Yes he has been honest about this. But the charavters enabling him doesn't help.

I agree that he knows exactly what he is doing. Maybe the first few seasons he might have been a bit clueless. He blossomed into a full blown condescending jerk. How Leonard put up with Sheldon is beyond me. Maybe he stayed to be close to Penny. 😂

Leonard wasn't any better himself, I am watching S6/S7 and his digs at Sheldon doesn't put him in a good light. He seems to have low self esteem and puts up with Sheldon ruling over him.

Leonard isn't perfect but is sarcastic and condescending to Others, Raj too.

They do have a dysfunctional friendship and yes Leonard should have moved in with Penny, but what was even more ridiculous was why they stayed with him after they were married! Penny was the one that caved in to Sheldon's whining about being abandoned and alone. Even worse was they still stayed there after Sheldon and Amy reconciled. Just totally ridiculous

Why did Penny do that? 

I remember in S7 she would give into his immature requests. 

I get Leonard because of low self esteem and his issues. I think he may feel the need to lean on Sheldon. 

Penny on the other hand complaint but put up with it when she didn't have to.

This also happened when they took in Raj as a boarder. Penny was anxious for him to live there but as I recall in season 12 could not wait to get rid of him as did Leonard.

Sheldon's arrogance and condesencion is manifested in many ways towards his so-called friends. Some instances are: the sweater incident with Leonard, the blackmail to Priya and Leonard just to get his way in the RA, the constant mocking of  Leonard about his job and references that his "friends" are there to cater to his every whim and take him whereever he needed to go without asking only assuming they will. But most of all his attitude towards Amy the woman he supposedly loves. These are not the images of a true friend.

This helped me see another perspective, I almost got caught in the early S1-S3 but he is extremley condescending. Which I think was overplayed.

Totally agree and so sad. Not to mention the terrible things he said about Penny as well.  

His remarks and digs to Penny was SO UNCALLED FOR. I get put off as viewer. He also put down his sister alot, he thinks his acamedic achievements make him better.
