Challenging the Myth:

They say that you marry someone like your dad:

I know everyone has heard this saying: Men marry women like their mom and women marry men like their dad. Well I’m here to dispute this myth. First of all I didn’t grow up with my dad, so it was hard to know what my dad was like. So let’s take a look at this picture. My dad went into the army and my husband went to college. My dad is outgoing, my husband is reserved. My dad is the life of the party and my husband doesn’t like to be the center of attention. My dad has been married and divorced twice. This is my husband’s first marriage. So as you see their are difference between the two of them. But what they do have in common is that they love me. They would lay down their life for me,  and they are both protective of me. Even though I didn’t marry a man like my dad, I married a man who loves me as much as my dad. Even though there are differences what we need to realize is that we as women want a man to love us, protect us, and take care of us. At the end of the day what’s important is that we are with someone who really cares about us.

  1. Interesting enough, I grew up without my father and as it turns out my husband was like my father – controlling, hard headed but yet a hard woring man. I learned of my father’s ways through others who spoke of him.
    On the other hand, my oldest sister married twice and her husbands were not like our father.
    Each woman may have a diiferent perspective because relationships are different and people do change sometimes when they have certain experiences.
    The point is, a myth is based on someone’s account of their truth.
