I have always heard that opposites attract. That certainly holds true at my house.
My husband is athletic and enjoys exercise. He loves anything outdoors, especially hunting and fishing. I, on the other hand, can’t walk and chew gum at the same time — so I don’t chew gum. I don’t like being outdoors unless there is a pool involved. I will circle the parking lot forever while waiting for a closer parking space.
Another difference is our taste in music. He is a hard rock ’n roller. I like country music. We do agree on most of the “oldies” from our earlier days. The driver gets to control the radio. Unfortunately, I don’t drive that often. If he gets out of the car, I change the station. Sometimes it takes a while for him to realize what I have done.
Several months ago, I heard that Luke Bryan was coming to the Brandon Amphitheater. He is one of my absolute favorite singers. I didn’t even mention going until I realized the concert was on my birthday. I ordered tickets and told my husband not to worry about getting me anything for my birthday!
Luke Bryan entered the smoke-filled stage on a four-wheeler and gave one of the most memorable concerts I have ever attended. He sang for two hours, and I couldn’t think of one single song I like that he didn’t perform. On the way home, my better half admitted that he enjoyed the concert and even recognized some of the songs.
Always remember that when opposites attract, you often have to compromise.
