She loves heights. He doesn’t. Is this you? (Source: iStock.)
Deep down, all couples in successful relationships are rule-breakers. That’s because they’ve ignored those classic “red flag” signs.
You know, the dealbreakers that would usually make you head for the hills. In a new Reddit thread, couples in long-term relationships were asked: “What were some ‘red flags’ you have ignored but had no impact on your relationship?” The answers are a reminder that love conquers all.
1. “He had never had a girlfriend.”
A lack of experience doesn’t mean a lack of love, people.
“Met my husband when I was 28 and he was 25. He had never had a girlfriend. He had several opportunities but was very picky (his friends told me this – he’s very attractive and hilarious). It made me nervous to be his first but it was also very flattering.”
2. She’s not “cultured”.
Sure, it’s one thing to know who Justin Bieber is, but what about musicians from other eras and genres?
“She saw Lord of the Rings and asked me if it was based on a true story. We watched Ray (movie of Ray Charles’ life) and asked me if he lived long enough to SEE the movie. I’m still in love because she’s golden and has made me a better man.”
The best part? They’ve been married 11 years.
