I loved this post! I am recently engaged to a man who I love dearly. We are so very different in so many ways; I'm an entrepreneur with five small businesses (my twin sister is my business partner) and he's a 9-5'er actuarial analyst (doomed to take professional exams for the next decade or so of our lives). He loves football (not NFL, what we call soccer in the States) and he's a singer. I studied journalism and do a lot of writing in my work and free time and can't sing a note. I like going to art shows (my twin is a professional artist) and discussions about making the world a better place. He likes going to sporting events (cricket and football; we live in his birthplace and that of my parents'--Trinidad & Tobago). I'm 4'll and 90 lbs...he's 6'2 and about 215 lbs...I'm a risk taker and he errs on the side of risk averse...we are opposites, but have learned so much from each other in the 3.5 years we've been together and can't wait to spend our lives together. We humor each other most of the time AND try to find things we both love to do together; I'm a better person when I'm with him and that alone makes our love very strong. This piece just reinforced that we're on the right path. Thanks for writing it. Peace and Blessings to you and your hubby!
