Someone recently asked me if Bear and I have arguments related to our differences in Culture.
I really had to think long and hard about this one. I wanted to be able to give as honest an answer as I possibly could.
But the one thing I kept coming back to was that I really couldn’t think of anything that we fought about that had anything whatsoever to do with our cultural background or differences.
Because…truly…we don’t have many differences.
We played the same games as kids; we just had different names for them.
We had similar educations.
Our family values had been the same.
Our ideas, beliefs, opinions and religious beliefs have matched fairly straight down the line.
But, as any couple…we do have our arguments.
To be fair, I should share them.
Are you ready? Are you sure? It’s rather shocking, so here it is…
We fight over the remote controls in the house and the big brown chair.
Every day, Bear comes home and steals away my lovely big brown chair, grabs the remote to turn the channel to a Sports channel to torture me. At night, he either turns off my AC or turns the control up to a blistering 26.
So you see…we are like any other married couple, squabbling over control of the remote, living our lives, loving one another and revealing in the beauty of life that God has chosen to give to us.
I hope that our life squabbles are always as easy as who “owns” the remotes. Because that answer is easy…from 8am-7pm Gori owns them…from 8pm-7am Bear does. 😉
Addendum: After reading this, Bear asked for me to add this…
“I feel that we do not argue because we talk TO each other and not AT each other. We discuss things before they become a problem. Also, I bring you a lot of Chocolate. 🙂
