what tv couple best describes you and your FI?
i think we would be marshall and lily from how i met your mother..i love their wedding episode!
Definitely My Big Fat Greek Wedding! I have the huge family that is crazy and he has the calm family haha. It is funny!
omg sarah my FI and I were just saying the other day how we are totally My Big Fat Greek Wedding. glad to know someone is in the same boat. My family is loud and big and likes to party and his is very calm and proper. hilarious.
I dont know how much they represent us...but Dharma & Greg.
I love How I Met your Mother! We are a lot like Ted and Robin (but still together)
King of Queens
Carrie & Doug Heffernen....for sure....there are so many episodes that we will watch together and we will slowly turn to each other and give that eye and then bust out laughing because we do the same thing.....my one favorite was an intro into the show where they were looking for a parking spot....it was priceless.
Allachka- that is my family all right haha. The first time we went to LA to meet my family, we played CRANIUM. We get so loud at everything we do, a neighbor called the police for being too loud haha. My FI's family is very suburban and relaxed. It is such a culture shock to go from my family to theirs!
Does Jon and Kate count? Whenever we watch Jon and Kate plus 8 we laugh because so many things they do resembles us.
Sarah - does your FI like your loud and crazy family or is he uncomfortable with it? My IF LOVES my family. It's always a party atmosphere at our house and that's new and exciting for him. Sitting here writting this I can literally see our families in a movie showing my family dancing and drinking at some birthday party and then the screen cuts to his family and we're sitting around eating dinner and quietly discussing something very proper. TOTALLY my big fat RUSSIAN wedding.
we are definitely Pam and Jim from The Office! :)
sometimes jamie and paul buchman from the old show "mad about you"
sometimes carrie and doug from "king of queens"
sometimes jon & kate from "j&k +8"
sometimes justine and rev run from "run's house"
i think the common thread among the 4 couples is the way they talk to each and other and communicate. fh and i have no boundaries with each other and we accept that in the heat of the moment if i or he says "fck you" we know we can and it wont be taken out of context - nor will it be taken seriously - it's all in the heat of the moment... we are both very "real" people and we let if fly when we need to - not that we fight alot - but when we do - it's all out... there's no sugar coating anything with us - b/c if it's bullsh!t and you sugar coat it - it's still bullsh!t kwim?? we also know that sometimes one or both goes to bed pissed off - and that's ok... none of the "never go to bed angry" with us - and sometimes one or both wakes up even more heated... that's just life - and to us, that's part of the "making it work" part...
then we both go to our "corners" and cool off and go back to "being friends again"... that's our olive branch - one of us will say - "soooo - can we be friends again??" along with a huge shit-eating grin...
then that's when we sit down and talk rationally and hammer out the issue we were arguing and fighting about in the first place...
we recognize that it's definitely it's not everyone's style - but it's worked for us in the years we've been together...
rock on d1rty! i told my FI in the light of my SIL&Brother and the possibility of them divorcing, i told him please, please, all that I ever ask is to communicate...communication is the biggest thing right next to trust.
we, like every other normal couple, have our arguments, and when we realize we are being idiots bout it, all we have to do is look at each other, one smiles, the other smiles, we both say sorry, make goofy faces and kiss and make up (with talking bout what set one off)....
maybe Mike and Susan from Desparate Housewives.. She's sometimes a ding dong and he's level headed. Also maybe King Queens. He's totally a Doug and i'm like a Carrie but not as mean! Oh and add a touch of Charlotte and Harry from Sex and The City. She's proper and lives in La La Land and he is focused on financials and future and feels lucky to have her. :)
And I have to throw this in there, but my sisters and family and i are TOTALLY like "Keeping up with the Karhdashians" minus the sex scandals. lol.
I think we are definitely like Ricky and Lucy. A month after we got married I almost severed my hubby's finger as I rolled up the car window. It's funny now but he wasn't laughing then :\
my sister and MOH seems to think FI and I are Corey and Topanga from Boy Meets World...I can't think of one so we will go with that...She says because we were HS sweethearts....and we pull pranks on each other and tease each other...I can see it.
We're very much like Marshall and Lily from "How I Met Your Mother". Dated for 10 years and are kind of goofy. We also had a lot of the same wedding planning issues. ;-) Thankfully we didbn't have the same house-buying issues.
I think we are like Ray and his wife from "everybody loves Raymond" But his family does not live next door... and his mom does not drive me that crazy...
But there are so many episodes where I think, OMG that sounds like us talking to each other!
