Made for Each Other
In keeping with today's Wifey Wednesday theme, another of my articles has been posted on the website. Here's how it begins:

In my marriage, I wreck the cars. Keith wrecks the laundry, but that doesn't cost nearly as much.

Of course, Keith recently backed into a tree and shattered our van's windshield, but since this was his one and only infraction in our whole marriage, we viewed it as an aberration rather than a pattern.

Then, when he went to buy a new car this fall, he bought a standard. I can't drive a standard. So I can't drive his car. I'm still trying to figure out if there's some hidden meaning there.

Keith and I have other differences, too. Keith has the "all the lights in the house must be turned off if not needed" gene. I'm missing that one.

His idea of a relaxing afternoon is to do absolutely nothing. I like taking energetic bike rides. He likes war movies. I like Jane Austen. We're a strange pair.

And yet, what most often occurs to me is how alike we've become.

You can read the rest here.

Amen! I have looked back over our six year marriage and realized how wonderfully perfect my husband and I are for each other. But we like to joke that if we went on eHarmony and created a profile, we would never get matched up with each other becuse we have so very few (read: next to NOTHING)in common! And yet, we are happy and more importantly, we have been good for each other. :)

Great post!
