  11. Yes, I do believe opposites attract. My first husband was totally opposite to me and he could not make any adjustments so we ended up divorced. My second husband, who I met 9 years later, was also opposite to me but had such a great personality that literally everybody who met him loved him. His collecting things was a point of interest (hmmmm) but his personality, kindness, and sweetness was worth ignoring those little things. We had a lot of fun in the 16 years married until he passed away at age 51.

  12. The saying ‘same but different’ comes to mind…yes I do believe opposites attract.

Through them my son-in-law found his grandparents, I found my grandfather and many new cousins of which only 2 live in the US. We are the best of friends and I love the fact that they are my cousins. I also was able to find my mother-in-laws family as a result of DNA. Found some very wonderful family I would have missed knowing otherwise.
