Who Women Marry

They say women marry men who remind them of their fathers.

Hmmm…let’s test this theory using my daughter’s fiancé & her dad (my husband):

Fiancé: Loves to eat & cook – Favorite meal to cook = steak
Father: Loves to eat & cook – Favorite meal to eat = steak
Proof: When Fiancé is coming for visit Father buys specialty cheese for taste testing

 Fiancé: Musician – plays guitar in a band
Father: Musician – plays drums and played in bands
Proof: They share obscure music they’ve found. Both are planning on playing at the wedding.

Fiancé: Hates malls, loves grocery stores
Father: Hate malls, loves grocery stores
Proof: When Fiancé discovered a great new store, daughter reported he kept saying, “Wow, I wish your Father could see this place!”

Finally, a picture is worth a thousand words:

 

Taken this morning after they got ready for the day and waiting to travel back from WV to NY. I looked up and started laughing at their resemblance to one another. Hard to believe it wasn't planned, but I swear it wasn't! (Even their legs were crossed so they looked like bookends!)

Not every woman would want to marry a man like her father (and not all should), but my daughter did really well using this method. Both have great "dad" potential, both are forward thinkers who believe in equality, both are fair and even-keeled (unless they are hungry), and both are men who know their way around a kitchen!

Oh, that is so cute! How cool that she has a father like that. I hope my daughters marry someone like their dad. Personally, knowing that I had a good chance of marrying someone like my father, I made a deliberate effort to find someone the exact opposite. It worked out beautifully! :D

Ha! Too funny! Thanks for proving the point that not all women SHOULD marry a man like their fathers. I'm glad you chose well & your daughters have a good example for a husband in their dad! My daughter is lucky that way, too!
