I have always heard that you marry someone that is like your father. My Fiance is very much like my dad. They are outdoorsy, and hard workers, and they get along great. They are so much alike. Is it true for you?

hahaha… the facial hair thread totally sparked this on, didn’t it?!
My dad and Fiance are nothing alike, that goodness!! However, my Fiance is exactly like my mom. I was raised by my single mother, so it makes sense. I am EXACTLY like my FIs mom though. As she says “The nut doesn’t fall far from the tree” haha and I’m the nut.

My Fiance is a lot like my grandfather (my mom’s dad). He’s funny, strikes up random conversations with people, easy going and chill. My dad is much more quiet, reserved and artistic…..he’s more like my sister’s boyfriend.

My Fiance is very much personality wise like my grandfather, very easy going and likes to joke around and interested in electronics and cars. My dad is very different a sorta mountain man who does construction work. I think though that they are similar in how they view taking care of their family and that is what makes me feel secure because my dad is very loving and worked very hard to make a good and stable life for my mother and I.

Creepily so. They’re both traditional (seriously, my FH put his foot DOWN when I suggested a outdoor wedding), and are both history and politics nerds. Both considered becoming priests before meeting their respective ladies. And man do they like to ARGUE! Luckily, it’s all friendly arguing, and I got the arguing gene too. 🙂

That is so funny because I was just talking to my mom how my Fiance and dad are so much alike.

@RecessionistaBride: Yes it did! It got me thinking becuase my dad has facial hair and I have always been attracted to guys with facial hair! (and my Fiance does too!)

Yes, they are very much alike, which is a good thing. They are both very, very good men! 🙂

Not really. They both work with computers a lot and my dad likes doing home renos and my husband likes auto work so I guess that’s a bit similar. But other than that, I’m out.

Yes, they’re pretty similar, but definitely some differences. The weird thing is that the ways in which my father’s not like him are ways in which he’s really similar to my ex. Which is fine – everyone gets along, but sometimes makes me wonder…

Yes they are similar – they both adore me! 🙂

Nope, not at all. My Fiance actually isn’t like anyone in my family that I can recall. There is somebody he is almost exactly like though….ME!
Seriously people think we are related because we share so many of the same qualities and mannerisms. The only area we aren’t alike in is that he is super outgoing and can strike up a conversation with anybody, where I am more laid back (not totally introverted) and prefer to listen to other people talk before saying anything.

they are so much alike it’s scary. my mom always comments that ‘you really are marrying your father…’. but i’m also a lot like his mom, so i guess that says something 😛
