Which is better to marry?

A) Someone who has nearly everything in common with you music, food, movies and shares similar life goals. They're fun to be around but they can't make you laugh.

B) Someone who has nothing in common with you in regards to music, food and movies but shares similar life goals. They're fun to be around and they can make you laugh like no one else you've ever met

  • I would say compatibility of character matters more than compatibility of hobbies/ interests, generally.

  • B, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have much in common as long as you can respect each other’s opinions and understand each other’s feeling. Differences can be a good thing.

  • B I love when someone can make me laugh

    I’ve always liked it when my partners had their own hobbies. I pursue my interests so feverishly that if they also liked the same thing it would just become obsessive and too much

    And it’s nice when they can entertain themselves with their own things. I think if my gal and I had all the same interests I’d spend so much time trying to do things in a way that best pleased her instead of enjoying it on my own

  • Person A, trying to date people I had nothing in common with was a trainwreck.

  • I pick person A no doubt. I don't understand why making somebody laughs matter so much to some people. This shit is why I hate people who think being funny is too important to be an interesting person when that person already has so much in common with me which is already so damn interesting in my eyes. Being funny is great but it's not important above all and such a big deal to me.

    • Person B still shares your values. Just that the hobbies are different which is a net good if you are open to new things. I'm an introvert, I dont NEED my partner to enjoy my hobby, just that she respects it. The laughing part is optional honestly. You arent joined at the hip you are two individuals in a union.

      • I don't mind the difference of hobbies aspect either. Having a funny partner is optional to me too. It's just that I am annoyed at the people who think being funny is so important above all to the point it dictates and dominates the other great qualities from the potential partner.

      • Yup. Same for me too. 'But that's about it' is a fitting word for the partner that can make me laugh.

  • Person A, as children can make you laugh whether your partner can or not.

  • Neither. Marriage is bollocks.

    • Yep you are going to die alone. Not me, cause I belive in the concept of love and I'm above a 5.

      • Yeah, because you can't truly love someone else without a piece of paper that says so, right? Come on, man. Tactless thing to say. Typical traditionalist judgement.

        Over 50% of people who sign marriage certificates sooner or later sign divorce papers. Marriage isn't sure-fire.

        • That person doesnt belive in marriage, wouldnt that imply that he doesnt want to join in a union, thus dying alone is a reasonable suggestion.

          • She.

            And no, because you don't have to marry to be in a healthy relationship. How do you not know this? Anyone who has ever engaged in society knows this.

            None of that changes you being a fucking hypocrite.

            • Sure but being in a relationship without marriage as an end goal just seems weird. Didnt say she was an idiot or ugly. Just that that kind of mindset sets you up for dying alone.

              Comment Hidden ( show )
      • I will most certainly not die alone. I was married once and it's just not for me, not with that person anyway. I was giving my own personal opinion. I have the most amazing boyfriend and we don't have to get married to prove that we love each other more than anything or anyone, but there is a slight chance that we will because he is the fuckin bomb, and so am I. Thank you very much, and good day to you sir/ma'am.

          • Haha shrinky nuts! Ha!

            Thank you m'lovely, so do you! I think we're both very happy regardless of a legal binding contract.

            • Exactly. Legally binding contract doesn't mean shit if you haven't got a strong, happy, healthy relationship.

              With someone other than your hand. Hah.

  • Rodeo clowns might be a good time in the sack but that's not who you want to settle down with.

    • Wasn't talking rodeo clowns. Was talking someone who is dry and completely lacks the ability to make you laugh vs someone who can easily make you laugh and you often laugh with.

  • Option G.
    your post is way to limited.
    sexually compatable?
    Spending habits?
    Housekeeping?
    Cooking?
    Jealousy?
    Arguements over nothing?
    Theres a lot more, then can you be entertaning.

  • Depends entirely on the person more in depth.
    In my experience sharing hobbies and taste in music means nothing, you can still be extremely different and on top of that you'll have nothing to yourself and some of the music you loved might be tainted if the relationship falls apart because you shared it with that person.

  • You need to have someone with similar life goals and who can make you laugh.

    Love, Laugh, and Live Life... Is only possible with such a person.

  • Option C
    Can fix shit around the house
    Has a career

  • Person A. You don't need to be funny to be fun. Besides, you can just watch funny movies together if you want to laugh with each other.

  • Option B. Opposites can attract. XD

    • Because it's good to have a couple that both have strengths in each others weakness. Hell my girlfriend is way more emotionally intelligent than me but I have a more thought out long term plan that she likes.
