Our title is part of the marriage vows. I read a Yahoo story about Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard that really got me thinking about marriage, our society's throw away mindset, parenting, commitment, etc. The article is actually a shorter version of an upcoming Good Housekeeping Magazine interview.
The picture at the left is a good start to our discussion. Kristen looks like a California girl, Dax is blue jeans casual. Every interview I've seen of the two of them, they sound different from each other. Kristen can rock an evening gown. Dax is like most guys -- a suit doesn't suddenly turn him into another George Clooney. Dax is casual in his speech. Kristen, while more precise, can be pretty blunt. In other words, they're basically opposites who make you wonder how they grew together and stay together. And that's what we want to look at.
