Married People Share The One Thing They Have Completely Different Opinions About

They say opposites attract.

Though, in order for any couple to have good chemistry, they will likely have to see eye to eye on certain things.

Or, at the very least, be open to hearing their spouse's side of things in order to avoid constant arguments.

In all likelihood, though, even married couples who seem to have more in common than not will still disagree about something.

Possibly something small, like preferring the beach to the mountains for a vacation, or indeed something more fundamental, like religious or political beliefs.

A difference of opinion neither side is ever likely to change.

Redditor Worldly_Platform3586 was curious to hear the many things married men always have, and always will, disagree with their spouses about, leading them to ask:
"Married men of reddit, what is one thing you and your wife have completely different opinions about?

Or Blue and Black, or White and Gold?...

"Whether any given thing that we are looking at is green or blue."- ThingThatsJustBegun

Plans Of Attack

"How to spend our vacation."

"My wife is the kind to plan a whole itinerary of things to do while visiting a place."

"I, on the other hand, just want to sleep in, eat all the food that I can't eat at home, and actually relax."

"Don't get me wrong, I wanna sight see, visit touristy things, and buy souvenirs, but to have back-to-back planned events for the whole trip can be exhausting."

"Knowing these differences, however, we compromise."

"I know I can't stay at the hotel all day, and she knows that we can't go out every minute."

Compatibility is an important factor in any relationship.

Then again, it's a sign of love in it's absolute truest form when people can overlook the things which drive absolutely crazy.

Friends, especially great friends share a lot in life.

We share secrets, memories, joy, sorrow and in some cases... sex.

The jury is still out.

It works for some and is a disaster for others.

An undeniable part of the magic that guests experience at many of the Disney parks around the world is the interactions with characters.

We can all agree that there is something to appreciate about every country in the world, but there are arguably some countries that appear to have their ducks more consistently and happily in a row than others.

While it would be easy to let pride get in the way and continue to do things the same way, the more productive thing would be to learn from the countries who have figured out a better way to do certain things, whether it's healthcare, food banks, or other services.
