Is it reasonable that a couple will looks like each other after many years?

These days I find a very interesting thing that both my girlfriend and I like to imitate each other, for example smiling, pretending to be very exited, or making a face. So I think it is reasonalbe that a couple will looks like each other more and more. By the way, the couple will eat the same food every day. Do you have these experience with your lovers? What do you think of this viewpoint?

I think that we do copy each other when we have lived close for many years. We laugh at the same things and cry at the same things, we show our moods in the same way and the smiles are often the same.

I think it's nice if you have something in common but it's not normal if you look like each other after some time. That proves you lost your own identity and own goals in life. It's also said that couples who do look like each other, even are wearing the same kind of clothes/fabrics lost their interest in themselves and eachother. I think it would be very boring if my husband would start looking like me, a very good reason to leave him.

Your warning is very nice. It is very sad for a person to lose their own identity and own goals in life. I believe there is just a few people who will do that, and most of the people will copy some good habits from each other. The influence is good for each other.

It seems that most of the couples will look alike when they grow old. I think it is reasonable. Since they have lived with each other for a long time. So they have similar hobbies, diets and so on. Perhaps this is why they will look alike after time goes by. I love China

i have received comments like that with people who have seen me and my husband, especially in pictures. they will say, your smile are the same and you are looking alike more and more. maybe because we are together everyday and that even by juts a mere look into each others eyes we can already say what we are thinking. and i think its just normal because we are husband and wife and we do almost the same things everyday and we really know each other for the past 9 years of our love and almost 5 years of marriage.

There was a research made stating that a person gets attracted or usually ends up in partnership or relationship with another person who have similar looks. I have thought over this and realized that there is much truth about this, but not necessarily 100 percent. I did notice how some of my friends and relatives have partners that really have physical/facial resemblance to each other. As for what you have stated, I think that people who lived together for a long time can get influenced by the actions and behavior around them, therefore make it likely to be contagious. This results in people having similar habits and interests.

The research you mentioned is interesting. That is another aspect which result in the couple who looks like each other. It is very nice that the man can be influenced by the actions and behavior of their wife, and then a gentleman comes.

I saw old people who looked very much like each other, and I thought it's because they spent so many years together. But yes it's true that lovers can become similar to each other in some way, like they use each others gestures or even the way they talk can become similar.

It is very natural for a couple to eat the same thing and enjoy many of the same things because of their living together. I think that it is true. Now my wife and I have developed a lot in common like online shopping, surfing on the Internet and so on.

You are right about the feeling that a couple should look after each other forever. But practically there happen to be a few cases where relationship gets kind of unhealthy leading to the breakup. But as far as loving partners are concerned, their love and compassion for each other binds them forever and a day.
