Opposites Attract (Or Just Drive Us Nuts)

Tell me again why “opposites attract.” On the minor things: values, family, raising kids, religion, money, politics, sex, love, and videotape, the hubby and I are totally on the same page. But it’s those pesky major things that tend to trip us up.

For instance, my idea of a good snack is a bowl of raspberries with Cool Whip Lite. His is a family-sized bag of Mega-M&M’s (those are the humongous ones). I read voraciously (granted, we’re not always talking fine literature here unless People Mag counts but still, there are printed words on a page); he incessantly plays this computer game that makes a weird annoying whomping noise. I go for chick flicks or romantic comedies; he prefers something supernatural or gory.

So tell me: are you involved with an “opposite?” And does it attract you or just drive you crazy?
