Ms. Hepburn was a fountain of great one-liners!
One thing I've learned in the long, wonderful marriage I've enjoyed in this lifetime is that it is a great thing for each partner to have their own interests and pursue them. Then each of us is pleased, and it makes for a much better relationship.
I love to do these things, my husband, not so much:
- travel, especially internationally
- practice Melt and yoga
- watch baseball and basketball
- go to estate sales
- work on my "every MLB stadium" quest (six to go)
My husband loves to do these things, me, not so much:
- ride a bike long distances
- camp in a tent
- play many musical instruments
- go to concerts
- collect gadgets
- follow current events and news
- research vehicles and technology
Each of us doing what interests us makes for good conversation, even after 35 years of marriage. I can sum up Ms. Hepburn's quote with this example. I LOVE a beach vacation--sun, sand, ocean, lazing, sunrises, sunsets, pampering--that's heaven to me. My husband says, "I don't get it. It's just a bunch of sand and water." I go on beach vacations without him, and we are both pleased!
