My husband and I are pretty different not only in our personality but in our likes and dislikes and what we enjoy doing in our spare time.
He is patient.
I am not.
He likes to fix things.
I do not.
I love old cheesy musicals.
He does not.
I could go on and on, But I won’t. I promise. I think our differences help us in our marriage. It would be pretty boring if we were the same personality. We also would not have that give and take. You know, when you show the other one you truly care by doing something that is not necessarily your favorite thing.
My Husband does this well and will sit through musicals with me whenever we have the chance. I know it is not his favorite thing, but you would never know it by how sweet he is when we go. I on the other hand do not do the give and take in our relationship as well.
I have mentioned before that my husband is a teacher. He teaches Spanish and loves the language and culture. He has been wanting to teach me for as long as I can remember but as you’ll refer to what I earlier wrote. Patience is not one of my virtues. I get frustrated and give up and threaten to not even ever eat a taco again let alone try to speak Spanish.
I think it is time I give it another try. I am turning over a new leaf and I will learn Spanish!
How do you differ from your spouse?
