they are so different! they only have a few things in common: beer, crime/war stories, and both will be more at home than they’re wives, dad is a teacher, mum works in a computer company, and works from 7am-6pm almost every day except wednesday, Fiance isn’t sure of what he wants to do, but is looking at creative writing, i will be an accountant

I don’t think they are anything alike!!!! Although, I LOVE my dad with all my heart, me and my dad butt heads because we’re a lot alike! So me and my DH are mostly opposites and that makes us mesh well and get things done! lol
ETA: My DH says I act JUST like his mom! And I have noticed it too…….lol

My Fiance and my dad are almost exactly alike. Except my Fiance doesn’t have my dad’s temper.

Not in the slightest. My “dad” (I use the term loosely – “accidental sperm donor” would be more appropriate) spent most of my life flittering in and out of it whenever it suited him. Stringing my mother along with empty promises and outright lies for years. Cares for no one but himself. Cheated on her countless times. I’m not even sure I can invite him to the wedding. There is no genuine love between us. Just having him there will feel like the biggest sham.
My Fiance, on the other hand, is responsible, loving, and loyal. Everything my dad isn’t. They don’t even look alike. Fiance – just over 6′ tall, light brown hair, green eyes, can’t grow a beard to save his life. My dad – just under 6′ tall, black hair, brown eyes, very furry.
In fact, the only similarity I can think of is that they both have a tendency to be a little arrogant/cocky. But my dad’s arrogance stems from truly thinking the damn world should revolve around him, while Fiance likes to be cocky for humorous purposes only.

He is a great deal like my father. The first time we met he told me a joke and I remember thinking that was the kind of corny joke my dad would tell me.

This is the sweetest thread! Even when the bride has a less than ideal father, she has the husband who gives her the things her own dad may have fallen short on.
I have this theory on like ten whole minutes of thought: the men we loved first taught us what to look for, and that’s what might be behind many of these similarities. My husband is like my mother’s father and my own father, and those two men were nothing alike! The only common thread is me – so I think I took what I liked about my Opa and my Dad and subconsciously looked for those traits.
He doesn’t look like either of them though! Wait – maybe he looks like my Dad’s father! LOL
