I had a neighbor that married a veterinarian that was like night and day to her. She was allergic to animals (he worked with them), she was a republican and he was a democrat, he was a body builder and she hadn't stepped into a gym a day in her life, he loved sports and she hated them, he wanted kids where as she dreaded them... On and on. They were night and day. They got married and have been together for 10 yrs, have two kids, and still both keep to what they love. Everyone wonders how they make it work. They have a big house with both of them living in separate bed rooms-they often say that having those separate beds has been that one thing that really made the relationship work. Why? That's their area of the house where they can keep doing the things they love and have their way where they agreed neither of them could change the other. Sort of a sanctuary to each of them. As long as you allow your SO to still enjoy what they had before a relationship with them in terms of likes and hobbies-then I don't see why it wouldn't work. I wouldn't mind as long as I was granted this.

I believe so. There has to be humility and understanding but it can work out. Opens the door for a lot of conversation too.
