My "salt and pepper" marriage - our differences make us a perfect pair.It's been around 15 years that we are married and living happily. It was not easy to adjust when you have an arranged marriage as we don't know much about our partner. It is after spending time with him or her we come to know the real personality of the partner.
Everything was fine when we used to talk over the phone before marriage but it was after the marriage I came to know that her nature is completely different and almost unmatchable with me like "salt and pepper".
She is more extroverted but I am not. I want to stay in whereas she wants to go out. she is a late bird, I am a morning person. I prefer peace whereas she likes loud music. There are many more things which indicate that we have different characteristics.
It's not easy to live when you have a partner of such a different opinion. But with each day, we both learned how to adjust and compromise. It's all about patience, acceptance and compassion which has made us a good pair. I don't remember when the last time we fought.
Many of the marriages fail because both the partner have an ego issue and don't want to compromise. If we know this art then we can a peaceful and happy life.
