I'm here, but I don't really have any advice for you. I tend to be the kind of tenant who just lives with whatever problems there are within reason. The landlord I had in my previous rental home was quite a bit like your landlord, I think -- he didn't like tenants who asked him to fix things. The tenants before us had asked for things to be fixed, and he hated them for it, I think. We asked only for a refrigerator repair once, and I had to call the repairman myself and take the cost out of my rent. I believe he kept some of our security deposit when we moved for carpet cleaning and painting, things he hadn't had done before we moved in, but we didn't fight it at the time due to other pressures we were facing.

If you're getting married 2 months before your lease runs out, does that mean you're going to be breaking your lease? You might want to make a quick check of the rental laws in your area or consult with a lawyer to find out what repercussions you should expect.
