I think it's important to have a similar worldview. Sharing core beliefs about the world around you (physical, spiritual, political, etc.) makes it
much easier to be partners in life with shared purpose. You don't need to be "the same", but at least on the same page.
Then there's those couples where one is a Cubs fan and the other a White Sox fan. Being serious, while tongue in cheek here - they actually make it
work! For a long time, I wondered how they do it. It's not because baseball just isn't a big deal to them, in fact, they're often both huge baseball
fans! So how do such diametrically opposed couples make it work?....
It's not the team, philosophy, optimism vs pessimism fan philosophy, etc., which connects them in this aspect - it's simply their love of the game.
Apply this to anything, and it negates my previous view, and yours too. In other words, where it works, its because they're seeing what we're not -
the connection underlying the apparent/surface differences.
