How well do you bond/gel with your spouse??.............Start considering every aspect of day to day life. Ok I will set the ball rolling here. First my side: Considering day to day life.... Dh and I are both interested in remaining active. We exercise regularly. Dh is a sports freak. He loves playing tennis and has joined in training classes long back and now he plays with college guys. I like to watch him play and feel proud that he plays so well even with people 10-15yrs younger than him. About house work etc, we both love to do and keep the house clean. He doesn't need any reminder from me neither do I. Whatever we find needs to be cleaned, dusted,mopped we just do it. We are both cleanliness loving persons. We both love clothes and always iron as soon as they are out of drier. We like to see the closet organized. It is not hard since both of us work on it together. Food wise, we are very different. I like spicy,hot and he is more for sugar loaded ones. He cannot eat the level of spice I eat so I have to either reduce or make separately for him. Both of like going out shopping. And we both like each others selection too. He does not get bored by shopping as I have heard some men do. Even, I love just window shopping electronics or other stuff which we may not need immediately. We both love going out but so many times we have arguments trying to prove each one is right. I by nature am very short tempered. He has more patience than me and when he sees that I am getting all heated up, he tries to change the topic or divert my attention. I am working on my temper issues these days with the help of so many tips here from ILites. He is more of a show-off when it comes to his talents. He does not want to take back seat while telling people how good he is at things. Yeah, I agree he is good at so many things but if it was me I let others praise me but would remain quiet and not sing my own praises like him. We sometimes have arguments when I point out how he went overboard singing his own praises. Emotionally he is very strong and independent. He really never needed my support emotionally but on the other hand I am just the opposite. I buckle under pressure too quickly and always need him to boost my positive side. I tend to give up too easily and become pessimistic very fast. He sees things from a broader picture and encourages me always. He is more optimistic about anything in life. For him, there is always 'tomorrow' , always another chance but for me if something does not go as per my plans I just cannot see any future in it. Both of us like to have friends over constantly. So, our house these days has become a kind of center place for friends to meet. So, overall, I can say we gel well since we are opposites in certain areas and each one makes up for the other and in other aspects we are on the same page. OK now pls share your side too..
