U is for Unlikely Couples

My husband and I do not agree on much.  He has a weird way at looking at the world that often drives me nuts.  He will always look at the negative in a situation, I try and look for the positive. I like to laugh and joke and he rarely thinks things that I say or do are funny and will laugh at things in a movie or on TV that I do not think are funny.  He likes the heat really high in the winter and the air conditioning really high in the summer even when its not that hot.  I don't get that.  I never like to be hot so I like the heat down in the winter and I love windows open as much as possible in the nice weather.  I only want the air conditioning on if its super hot.  Even though we have been married for a long time, I guess in lots of ways we are an unlikely couple.  That got me thinking about other unlikely couples out there and  started looking around.

Well apparently in the 1980, Tom Cruise and Cher were an item.  She even supposedly lived with him for awhile.  I guess I slept through that one because, I did not know that.

Lisa Minnelli and David Gest had an elaborate wedding but the marriage didn't last.  He accused her of beating him and giving him herpes.  Its a shocker that they did not stay together after that, sounds like a match made in heaven.

Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett  OK what was she thinking. She married him after only knowing him for three weeks.

Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Jackson this is the ultimate unlikely couple.  I have heard her in interviews say that they had a normal marriage.  Lie detector please!!!  Sorry I do not believe it for a second.

None of these unlikely couples could  make it work, so why am I still with my unlikely husband?Hmmmmmmm, not sure I'll have to think about that one  :).

  1. I remember scratching my head at the Julia/Lyle match up. It was so out of the blue.

    I HATE being hot and I sleep with the window open even when it's snowing. My husband is not a fan of this behavior. He does laugh at me though - like a nervous, shaking his head kind of laugh. Hmmm.

  2. I'm not sure if opposites attract or not. The people you've highlighted sure do look opposite on the outside but i wonder if on the inside if they are similar in some respects.

    On the surface though they are truly weird couples, as are most people from Hollywood.

  3. Too funny. It seems like unlikely couples are more common than likely ones. I usually scratch my head when couples have everything in common....

  4. Yeah, there aren't too many marriages that can survive STD accusations.

  5. Like you my husband and I are pretty opposite so we've always found that the old cliche of opposites attract one that seems rather more likely than not. I am a bit shocked by the Tom Cruise/Cher match up though. It seems like one of those flip books from when we were kids like mix and matching different heads and bodies ups.

  6. My husband and I are pretty different. That's what makes us work well together. Together, we make 1 whole awesome person.

  7. I DO believe that opposites attract so that must be what works for you and your husband! Not many celebrity couples work apparently, opposites OR alike. Have a great weekend!

  8. I'm not much for following celebs, but you're post gave me a good laugh. Opposites attract, right?
