    Hmmm…my favorite marriage of opposites is my own. Because sameness makes marriage boring, glad to be married to someone who in many ways is so vastly different frmo me.

  2. Bonnie Franks says:

    I already did this on an earlier facebook post. Does it count? At the time I saw several other responses also. I sent the email. I shared.

    My marriage of opposites was my own, which didn’t last. He was the bad boy and I was the good girl. He was from the projects and I came from a good home with a caring and loving family. I loved being in love, he loved getting in trouble. I could go on and on, but I won’t bore you with some of the worst things that happened. Thanks for a great giveaway once again Robin! xx

    I think my parents because my mom is tough love and my dad babies a little more. It’s a good way because they both help each other out in different scenarios of their lives. I emailed you, I’ll tweet it and I shared the picture.

    My husband is a patient introvert , I’m an impatient extrovert. We married in our 50’s. We arrived at the wedding in a shiny, red convertible. A friend said to him,”Is this your midlife crisis” and he replied,”No, Clare is my midlife crisis”. He’s quiet, but funny!

  6. Anne says:

    My husband and I are opposites since I like to eat and cook gourmet as well as salad. He would prefer buffalo wings and a beer. But together we took a test and are a genius since he can build the geometry boxes since he builds for a living, and I can answer the book smart questions especially science ones.

  7. Susan Roberts says:

    Like many if the other posts – it’s my husband and I. I have book smarts, he has street smarts. I am from the north and he is a southerner. More differences than I have time to mention but we celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary in September so we must be doing something right

    Marriage of Opposites – i would say my ex and I.
    Him – redneck hunter, fisherman, NASCAR watcher, simpleton, trailer trashy.
    Me – NOT!!
    I can spell, he used spell check. I’m an avid reader. His idea of reading is looking at the pictures in magazines.
    I can dress in jeans, sweats, on up to black tie – his idea of dressing up – black jeans and a button down shirt, the likes of what Charlie Harper wore on, “Two and a Half Men.”
    I’m a foodie. His gourmet meal is from Applebee’s. I did work very hard to change that, to no avail.
    It worked for a while, but not so much any longer.
    NOTE: I had no intention of ruffling anyone’s feathers with my use of redneck, trailer trash, & NASCAR.

    Alice Hoffman was one of the writers I read early on who inspired me to write. So excited that you’re interviewing her!

  10. Holly Robinson says:

    Oh, oops, hit “enter” before I described a marriage of opposites: My own! My husband is a software engineer, so shy that he has to make notes before he makes a phone call. Brilliant, and can fix anything. Me, well, my brother used to call me “Motor Mouth” and I don’t know one end of a screwdriver from the other.
