Complete Opposites?

My husband and I are complete opposites on the surface, and fight about everything from satellite tv packages, to where we are going for dinner. I know that some people think we are ad odd couple, but our differences are what make our relationship special. I am very liberal and was raised Jewish, and my husband is more conservative and was raised Christian. One might think that we are very different, but at the end of the day, we are actually a lot alike. Even though we fight about the little things, all of our core values are the same. We both believe in generosity and charity to those in need, and accepting others the way they are. The big things are what is important to us. Our families also get along really well, which one might not suspect. We always have a great time when we are all together. My husband and I mostly fight about insignificant things, and it keeps our life very interesting. Our marriage might seem odd to some people, but I couldn’t envision my life any other way. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life arguing about the small things!

  1. My husband and I are opposites too! But we were both raised the same religion so we have one thing in common that we don't argue over. We "discuss" as my husband calls it. I "shut down" as my husband calls it too when it really is a "debate" as I call it. We have been opposites married for 30 years this year. Can't tell you how many people ask why we are still married. LOL At the end of the day it is all good!
