Watched some friends get married today - actually, was the photographer for their wedding. Guess it made me think of this subject. The couple was just so in love, even after over four years of being together. That's when you know it's love - when you can get past the "in love" stage and still like each other!
People think the 'opposites attract' means that he likes rock, she likes classic; he likes sports, she like reality TV, etc. NO! Opposites attracting means different personalities that actually compliment one another. I mean, you have to have something in common! When lust wears off, you have to still like that person. Opposites attracting means that while your personalities are different - he's introverted, she's extroverted, he's organized, she's not - that is actually a good thing, because where one is weak the other is strong. Your pairing basically forms a whole person.
Now, this does mean you'll be doing a few things you don't like - but then again, that means it's love!
When an action doesn't come naturally to you, it is a greater expression of love. - Gary Chapman "The Five Love Languages"
