Typical Couple

Hey friends! How are you today? Hope everyone is well!

So today I want to talk about what a “Typical Couple” is. See this was all spurred by a conversation I was having with 2 friends earlier today, Kenya and Vicki.

When you hear the term Typical Couple what do you think? Do you think there is such a thing? I honestly do not think there is such a thing as a Typical Couple. I say this because every couple is different in one way or another and honestly that is a darn good thing. Why? Because if we were all the same this world would be pretty dang boring.

Mr. Big Truck and I for instance have a great relationship. Is it perfect? To us yes, but that is a whole other topic for another day. We communicate very well, we handle our money well, we handle our differences well. So far we handle this whole parenting thing well -granted I am still pregnant but we have had numerous talks about how we want to raise Little Miss. I like to think that we have a balanced relationship where we both listen to each other. When we discuss things that need to be decided, if we do not see eye to eye on them we both state our “case” for lack of a better term and then make a decision together, that we both agree on. Some couples I know are very one sided and either the man or the woman makes a final decision regardless of the other persons thoughts or feelings.

I also know other couples who do not even bother to communicate about things. It blows my mind. I am talking about people who do not talk about anything. I know people who hide things from their spouse, make huge decisions without considering what their spouse would want or think, people who do things behind the others back and say “oh he or she will be fine with it” and when it comes down to it he or she is PISSED. I also know people who hide the fact that the get extra money from their spouse. To me, all this is mind boggling. I could never and would never do any of these things to Mr. Big Truck nor would he do any of these things to me. However knowing that there are people out there that do this and it works for them more power to them! Would it work for us? Nope! Is that behavior typical to them? Yes. Is it typical to us? No. See what I’m getting at?

So I again to me there is no such thing as a Typical Couple. I think every couple is typical to themselves and no one else and that is one of the great things that makes this world go around.

Keep on keepin’ on my friends!

  Hugs, Nikki

    I think when Jason and I first started dating, and then later married, I would compare us to other couples…and that’s not healthy. I totally agree that no couple is “typical” or “perfect”…when I first met Jason he would tell me, “You’re perfect…for me”, and I loved that 🙂

      Yes you can not compare your current relationship to past ones. That is one way to insure they will not last! I love that he said “You’re perfect…for me.” So cute!

    People make comments about the way we do things- we eat out more then our friends, we heat our house mostly with wood not electric or gas (THAT blows their minds), we don’t buy everything on line but prefer to pay cash in store or we do without… and sometimes I will tell him stories about conversations with these people… Dan will remind me that we are not the odd couple out. We just have different priorities then others we know. What works for one does not work for another. So no, there is no such thing as a typical couple. And I agree with you – compromise and honesty is HUGE in a relationship.

      I love that all couples are different I think it gives people something to talk about when they get together too. Dan is right it is good that you guys know what works for you guys and you have your priorities set for you!

    If anything, I think a ‘typical’ couple is a bad thing. I’m happy that Will and I (and you and Mr. Big Truck) have AMAZING relationships. I would never waste my time on typical.
