          Opposites Attract, But Can They Last?

          August 19, 2003

          They say opposites attract ” but can they stay together without driving each other crazy? When you’re falling in love, differences may seem cute ” but within time, they can get annoying and threaten a relationship.
          Dr. Phil and his wife Robin have figured out how to poke fun at their differences and make their marriage work.

          Robin McGraw spills the beans on what it’s like to live with Dr. Phil.


          From the way they eat, sleep and brush their teeth to their overall outlook on life, Scott and Jolene’s differences have their marriage on the line. They’re also concerned about how their different parenting styles will affect their three kids.



          Seven years into their marriage, David and Lori hardly spend any time together. “If I put a hockey stick in my hand, he’d be with me 24/7,” says Lori, who feels her husband’s passion for sports comes before their relationship.


          Janet and Paul have been married for 20 years and have learned to embrace their opposite ways … with a little outside help. He’s a slob and she’s a neat freak, and they say their cleaning lady has saved their marriage!
