"Marriage is a union, to be sure, but it's a union that should liberate, not incarcerate. Real love shouldn't limit a person's potential, it should expand it."
~Seth Adam Smith
Just as the couple in this article are vastly different-one being a "fish," the other a "bird"-Erik and I are different. I love being outdoors, socializing, spending time with family, having a clean home. Erik loves playing games, learning about technology, being alone, and doesn't care if he is living in a mess or not. I love school, and Erik hates school. We both love learning, but we learn different ways. I enjoy camping and being in the mountains. Erik would rather go to the dentist than go camping. I like going to the dentist. Erik dislikes going to the dentist. Erik loves talking about how to build webpages, and learning all the different web building languages. I don't care how the webpage was made, I just care that it works.
Want to know what's crazy about all this: WE MAKE IT WORK! We may not do it the way you do it, and you may not do it the way we do it. I think the important thing is that we strive to let each other be the very best person that we can be. We are not always perfect at it, but we are learning to be perfect at it. We are changing, growing, and becoming better than we ever have been.
