I don't mean to sound like I am belaboring the point but the exact can happen between a Sanguine and Melancholic - where one wants to have social life being around people, etc. A melancholic who are around too many people at the same time can cause them to withdraw even more. I think that like all temperaments mixing, especially when they are exact opposite as the sanguine and melancholic is, the level of maturity. This would be needed in accepting the person as they were and not trying to make them into something they are not.
In our age bracket, I think the key component is the level maturity the two people have to have the rest blend. Each age bracket has their own "issues," that have to be worked out. This is one of the key elements in Tracy & Liam's relationship. This is not saying the other couple did not have it, as I reallly did not know them.
Mary, I agree, and feel that accepting of another's traits is the key, and working on understanding how different personality traits can work.
....I dated a man who was a complete opposite of me; except we were of the same heritage, and I was caring for his Mother private duty when she passed away. He seemed to trust me, and we were more like siblings than anything else. A few years passed of really no intereaction at all; for I had to move to another location, but I came back to rent his Mother's home.
He leaned on me to help him out of a potential mistake..............he had approached his farmer client's daughter who was 26 yrs old with "I care for you", and she thought he meant as a father would. He was messed up, we spoke, he attached those feelings onto me we talked and considered dating............but he was not raised Catholic, he denies religion, but says he belives in God, and is a loner of sorts, melancolic type engineer reader, shy around people, a indoor person......................
....I am opposite of all those,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,anyway I had to tell him that we could be just friends ...........for he was not interested in learning about the Catholic faith, even with many of his close friends being Catholic............
So, I feel the personality temperaments are one of the major considerations in a succuessful marriage.
But I find with each year I get more comfortable with living alone.................and just having a community of friends.
...........hate to say it, but it's true,,,,,,,,,,,,,I raised one son,,,,,,,,,,,,,and if I am to marry I would want a mature man
How about you?
