Opposites--100 Words


The old saying is that opposites attract.

You ever notice that? Probably.

That is never more true than in a marriage.

She’s always cold. He’s always hot.

He loves the beach. She loves the mountains.

She wants to watch a romantic comedy. He wants to watch ESPN.

What’s a couple to do?

Fight? Disagree? Go to their respective corners and count to ten?

How about compromise? While compromise often seems to be a negative thing, it doesn’t have to be. It can be positive. And, healthy.

In any relationship, compromise is a must. It’s about give-and-take. It’s about sharing.


  1. Well put Steve. Jo & I are opposites. She can't make up her mind whether she is cold or hot. I am mostly hot. I like the mountains and adventure. She likes the computer and sitting in front of the TV. She likes action movies. I like all kinds (mostly action). I am very active. She is not (unless you count fingers moving on a computer active). We compromise. I give in and she wins. LOL Good thoughts here my friend. Say hi to my family on FB.

  2. C'mon's time for you to come on over to the darkside! Join FB already...the fun only awaits you!

  3. What’s a couple to do?

    Love each other completely and lift each other up. Involves a lot of compromise, but it is definitely worth it.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I can't wait to read what you have written.
