    A little bit in that he seems rather oblivious sometimes and is not a good listener, but that's all men really.

    Absolutely. My dad is from a small town (50ish people small), he's very hard working, hates just sitting around doing nothing, he's task oriented, mechanically inclined, loves the outdoors, non confrontational, etc. My husband is all of those things as well. Before I met my husband I dated a guy that was the complete opposite of my dad and it turned out horrible. We fought over the dumbest things, from what to do for fun to the kind of milk we each drink. I knew my husband was the one because he has a lot of the qualities that I like in my dad. He's definitely not exactly like him, but similar. This may seem stupid to some, but the little things mattered and made a huge difference in my marriage compared to my previous relationships. My husband and I both drink 2% milk, we like Mountain Dew and detest Pepsi, we're fans of action and suspense movies, and our taste in music is pretty much the same. Little things matter, as do the big things (finances, kids, etc). Who really wants to fight over what movie to watch or what to have for dinner? It gets old after a while. And the fights over little things can turn into big brawls after time.

    My husband has many of the same personality traits as my father. It's a good thing, too, because I dearly love my Dad and I have a great relationship with both of the men in my life.

  • No not at all.

    I have heard that women and men do pick partners that remind them of their parents in some way. But my husband is nothing like my dad.

    I didn't really have a father figure, so I would say no ... as my husband is a part of my life and my father was not.

    Oh god he seems more and more like my Dad every day. But all the qualities I like and admire in my Dad.

    They have the same sense of humor and they have the same kind of work ethic. They also have the same kind of quick temper. I have a good relationship with my dad and I look up to him.
