Similar interests or none at all

Do you and your spouse share a hobby, sport, or activity? My hubby and I like very different things. I leave the room or "zone out" when he watches or plays his sports. We like different movies, books, and even food. Somehow we've stayed together!

Oh noodle..   we have nothing in common.  It's pitiful..  we live totally unconnected and after 40 years we should be best friends.  It's not good.

MaryB, do you have a few beliefs or opinions in common with him about non-hobby things, like politics, religion, community? We have fairly similar (but not exact) views on those.

Oh noodle, the only way that works is if they want a relationship.   :dunno:   In 40 years I just want peace, and go the route of least resistance..  haha I leave him alone!   :big hug smiley sign:

My husband and I are best friends, which sound so cliché.  We do just about everything together, but it requires compromise.  I don't actually enjoy sports, but I'll tag along with him and will happily cheer on his favorites.  He doesn't like knitting, but he'll look at yarn with me and he feigns interest in my latest project.  I think it's important to certain things in common, such as your faith, political stance, financial outlook, and an idea for how you'll raise your future children.  Those things lay a solid foundation for a lasting relationship.  I don't have too many friends outside of our relationship and neither does he.  So of course we naturally stick together.  I used to want more girlfriends, but it's not like I'm lonely.

We lean more towards "none at all". We're older now so it is different but when we were younger my husband worked all the time. Three jobs, always away, would sleep in his car a lot of the time. We would watch the occasional soccer game together (he's a big fan) but I preferred to watch hockey and baseball. We are together quite a lot these days as he's no longer able to work. We peacefully co-exist.

My husband and I both like to read, but we read different genres. Other than that, we don't have a lot of the same interests. He likes to watch sports, and I like to watch crime shows like Criminal Minds and some reality shows like Survivor. We peacefully co-exist, but I wish we could find more things to talk about and do together. We used to be closer when we were first married, and I miss that.
