My little sis is getting married
This coming weekend my little sister is going to get married to a man that I can only describe as her opposite. Most people would be flabbergasted at the idea of marrying someone that you have very little in common with. Personally, I find the idea quite realistic and good. It’s easy to get sick of someone who is identical to you in most every way, especially if you both have egos or are equally bull headed.
For the past year or so, I have been married to my opposite. She is the strong silent type afraid to step out of her bubble. I’m the shout from the rooftop guy who is constantly exploring his weaknesses. We blend better than any couple I have ever seen. The keys to a successful “opposite” couple are (1.) Give- never be afraid to give up things you love, especially if there is an outside chance that giving it up will strengthen your relationship. (2.) Forgive- everyone screws up, especially when you are opposites. Imagine the thought process from each party that goes into a social gathering. The quiet one will want to sit in a room criticizing the outgoing who are dancing and having a good time with complete strangers. The outgoing will be criticizing those sitting in the corner. It’s a way of thinking and if you are considerate to your partner’s “opposite” way of thinking, you will understand where they are coming from.
On a final note I want to wish my sister the best of luck with this marriage and with their new house in Canton.
