All is fair in love and war

Someone mentioned to my wife and I that we are fun to be with as we do not agree with each other all the time. 

Huh? Yep, that was the statement. 

The explanation was in contrast with all those lovey dovey couple who keep on agreeing with each other (or one of them will be agreeing with the other who seems to be the life of the party), we always have our own opinion. Those lovey dovey couple can always be agreeable but then after a few years (even months) breaks up and go their separate ways.

Yes, we argue or held our own opinion in a lot of things. We do not always see eye to eye and we will make a stand on certain issues even if that means we are on the opposing side. We tease each other about our shortcoming and we know each other likes and dislikes.

We are together as one couple but we treasure our individualism. We fell in love with each other due to this. No one among us is trying to change that. 

I hope we will be like this until our old age...Just like the movie Up! (which is another matter to blog about on another day)

  1. Here's a Sanskrit verse that describes the characteristics of true love.

    ददाति प्रतिगृह्णाति
    गुह्यमाख्याति पृच्छति ।
    भुङ्क्ते भोजयते चैव
    षड्विधं प्रीतिलक्षणम् ॥

    Giving and accepting gifts, disclosing and inquiring about confidential information, accepting food (from you) and feeding (you) are the six characteristics of love.
