Do you think you married your father?? Not literally but in some traits/moods that your DH may have. Maybe you see a similarity in the two??

  • Hell no. My father left us when I was three. If you imagine a face for the word goober you have my father. Absolutely NOTHING like my DH.

  • No, No similarity whatsoever, Thank God! My DH is a kind, caring, loving, human being. He has quite the heart of gold.
    My father on the other hand is, uncaring, selfish, doesn't know how to love anyone but himself (poor, poor Mother), and he's also a terrible Grandfather too.

  • Yes! They both are very calm with me when I am MAD. They both make jokes to me to lighten the mood when I am angry. But my husband is a much better father than my dad was. :)
    The scarey thing is, sometimes I think I am like his MOM! YIKES!!

  • Sometimes the similarities are so close it makes me sick!

  • If you had asked me a few years ago I would have said no way. But looking more closely at my dh and my relationship over the past 20 years with my dh, I realized that just like my father, nothing I do is ever right or ever good enough. So in a way I guess I did.

  • Yes, but my dh also has some of my mother's traits as well. And not their good ones! :(

  • Yes. Both are selfish and have short hot tempers

    Answer by mommy_of_two388 at 12:30 AM on Jul. 13, 2011

  • Yes, both love Military stuff, have never ending patience, are quiet, and don't express their feelings to anybody.
