What do you think?

Maybe it's just me, but I think that there are a lot of married couples out there who look an awful lot like each other. So much so, that you look at their kids and can't quite tell who they look more like, mom or dad?

So what does that say about those of us who marry someone that looks like us? Are we conceited? Did we find our spouse so attractive because they remind us of ourselves?

I know that there is more to an attraction than looks, but what do you think? One more thought before you answer though. I know for me, I see some 'odd' looking couples and really my first thought is how did they pair up because they really look a little weird together, yet I think nothing of it if there is a similarity between the two of them be it they are both beautiful people or ugly people. I'm just sayin'.

I took a psychology class in college, and they said that people are innately attracted to people who are at the same "level of attractiveness" as themselves. They compared it to animals only being attracted to their own species.
I kind of agree, I mean, it's not very often you see a really ugly person with a supermodel.

(I guess this is a comment on the comment.) It does happen, and usually that ugly person has money.

Or, that ugly person is the guy. You see a lot of pretty girls with not-so-good-looking guys, but almost never the other way around. What does that tell you?

But, for the most part, I think couples are usually pretty evenly matched in attractiveness. After all, I think we all inately know our "league" and stick to it.

Now, what about pets that look like their owners?

Yeah...I agree. Blaine and I are both HOT!

I think that you start looking like your spouse the older you get... and the longer you have been together.

You just have to be careful you don't get matching hairdos.

I know a couple that did. It was not a flattering thing.
