“We are Total Opposite” is our interesting topic for Couple’s Corner this week.Well, opposites attract as they say but this is not so true with Rhonnel and me. We almost have the same values, beliefs and likes though we also have little differences which I think is just normal between partners, couple or not.Hubby and I are both thorough and organized when planning vacations and occasion especially the big ones but when it comes to other things, like things in the house, I am more conscientious. Rhonnel is contented as long as things are arranged neatly, but not me. I am a little OC. I want things in their proper places, arranged according to their sizes and/or colors. In fact, even things like our clothes hangers are arranged according to their colors; darkest to lightest, biggest to smallest. Books are arranged according to their subjects and sizes. CDs are arranged according to their genres. And when I hang clothes, it should be according to their color and length with equal distance between each clothes; things that Rhonnel usually do not understand. Is there something wrong with me? Oh, do not be shy to leave your honest opinions about this. Honestly, I want to know if I am normal or what…ehehe.
I love arts and I appreciate aesthetic interests while Rhonnel has no artistic interests but he appreciates my sketches and he is planning to frame and hang them all. I love it when he praises my works.
I am more sociable than Rhonnel. I love seeking out experiences and learn new things. Rhonnel is quite reserve and tends to shy away from social situations but despite of this he is everybody’s friend. In fact he has more friends than me. Other than these, we are very much compatible in most things.
According to Donna Patterson, author of “Ready For Marriage Dating”, a couple who has similar values and beliefs will have a better chance at working through problems than a couple who does not. But I see couples opposite in almost all things, yet get along extremely well.
It does not matter if you have differences as long as you love one another and respect each others traits. “Marriage is meant to complement each others talents and skills so that you can form a complete love nest”, as what have Mr. Mel Alarilla commented on one of my posts. Nobody is perfect and no one holds the distinction of knowing everything. God purposely made it this way so that people will learn to cooperate with each other.
