Ever find yourself wondering....

MamaDivine MamaDivine
My friend asked me the other day "Well, what DO you two have in common?" Speaking of my husband and I. And I sat there and thought "Omg what DO we have in common?" I mean, theres a few things that we have in common, but in no way, shape or form is it enough to warrant marrying a person lol. We love each other and we've been through a lot of hard times, lost a our first child together (stillborn) and we've stuck through all that. We love each other unconditionally, no matter how badly the other gets on our nerves for whatever stupid reason. Thing is, Im still wondering "What on earth...why can't I come up with things in common with him?!" lol. Do you truly think that opposites attract?

Ciao. Ciao.
Eh, I feel like "opposites attract" is probably not entirely true. It's just a nice way of explaining couples that don't make obvious and apparent sense to the outside world.

Just because you don't share the same interests/hobbies doesn't mean you don't have great chemistry and communication. There's a lot more to a relationship than purely being interested in the same stuff.

What you have in common are shared life experiences together, that unexplainable chemistry and love.

My hubby and I are the opposite as far as having things in common. We love to ride dirtbikes, restore them, fishing, hiking, yard sales, antiques, road trips, same views on sex, and many other small shared hobbies/interests. We have shared life experiences but those can go either way on togetherness or pushing us apart. The chemistry and love is still there, though.

I have thought about this from time to time. My wife and I are complete opposites, yet somehow it works (and I marvel at that sometimes). It's like we balance each other out to become a complete couple. It's an interesting question because if we were actively searching for someone, logic would say one would be more inclined to seek a partner with similar interests. But when I met my future wife we just clicked before we knew much about each other's interests and as a result, love grew from that.

My husband and I have a few things in common, but like you, nothing to base a whole marriage on. We've been through and stuck with it through a lot of crap as well. And we love each other unconditionally. I can't imagine life without him...

My husband and I have a few things in common, but for the most part we're opposites.

We are opposites for the most part, I am a "go out and get it" kind of guy while she is more of a "Stay home" type gal. For us it works out good though, I get her to experience new things and she helps to keeps me in check.

Being together for 23 years pretty much says it all.

My husband is the outgoing can talk to everyone about anything kind of guy, very extroverted and I'm more of a shy I'll speak if spoken to so as not to be rude but won't start most convos type of girl, very introverted I am. Other than that though we have a bunch of shared interests so I think that opposites can attract but without at least a little bit of something in common it'd be hard to stay together.

This sounds like us. My hubby likes to go out and be wild. He has even been arrested multiple times. I like to stay home and just chill. I have to keep him in check otherwise I would have to go bail him out of jail. We have been together 6 years and we love each other, but when it comes down to it we really don't have a lot in common. Sometimes you need an opposite to keep you in your place.

I'd say to some extent, having opposites on a few issues is good, but sharing a lot of core values helps too. My girlfriend tends to be more sociable and adventurous in the climb a mountain sense, and I'm much more calm and relaxed. We balance each other's excesses, but we do share a lot of interests.

I think likes attract, but not necessarily in terms of interests. I think people tend to be attracted to those with similar values.

My husband and i were complete opposites when we got married and over the last (OMG has it really been?) 4 years of married life we've switch. I'm more like him 4 years ago and he's more like me, but we still have the basics in common and thats all that matters.

I'm undecided, but I agree with what myscreenname said, as long as you make each other happy, that is really all that matters.

I don't feel like opposites attract, but I don't think you have to be exactly the same either. I think complementary personalities are all you really need, and usually those are the people you love.
