    Two Strong Personalities Together?

    In order for a marriage to work, it is essential that one has a stronger personality than their partner? What if both of them are assertive, both of them are leaders and not followers, can it ever work? Basically my question is can a relationship work when both partners posses a strong personality?

    Hmm.. HARD QUESTION!
    But it can work if they are not.. selfish?
    As in they don't want everyone to HAVE TO follow every word they say.

    I think it is hard to be together though...

    I think it can work, provided that they don't use their power or strong personalities against each other.

    It can definitely work as i have seen it happen before, but, generally one of them has to back off a little and then it will become a little you a little me, if their lucky!
    and of course thats not always the case, but in general i think if two people love each other they can find a way

    I think it's possible but each personality should be put in the right place for it. You can see some features in a certain family and you would say the husband of the family must has great wife and vise versa.

    That is the personality which we should differentiate it from understanding.

    I have a strong personality and would want to date someone who has a strong one. The key is respect and understanding. Finding a balance where your wants and needs are always the one that overwhelm the relationship and vice versa from the partner. Simply why communication is so important.

    Personally, I can only click with someone who has a stronger personality than myself. I prefer being controlled and a follower, than me being the leader, it just won't work. Then again, it's 'coz I don't have a strong personality, but if two people both had strong personalities, then maybe it may work.. maybe.

    In all good relationships the man is fully in charge. The woman might be tough and bossy with everyone else but with him she's a kitten.

    Yah I don't see why it shouldn't work out if they're both tough nuts. However, I don't think they'd survive if they both had weak personalities. That would be one lousy couple

    It could work out, but if they were both very stubborn it would just mean they would have a harder time resolving problems. The only way it'll work is if they both take turns sacrificing from time to time.

    In most relationships, you'll have a strong personality and a weak one; the latter always ends up sacrificing more or adjusting to please the other partner (usually it is the woman).

    I'd rather be the weak one. I don't want my husband following me around or tagging along. I don't want to be the one doing all the hard work. The stronger personality is usually the one who takes care of the weaker one. However, I wouldn't want to be bossed around either.

    ^ exactly the same. i wouldn't call it weak though, but rather more flexible.

    two strong personalities is a lethal combination. specially if both are very stubborn people that would just not back down..i'm not saying it won't work out, it might, but it's gonna be one hell of a ride!
    a ride i'm not sure i wanna be on.

    I wouldn't mind her strong personality if she makes sense.

    If both have strong personalities and are both not willing to compromise, then it's a match made in hell..

    If they BOTH have strong personalities but also have that extra quality of giving in once in a while, then yeah..it would work.
