Possible worm can opener (I hope not!).....
I will buy that if you mean they "fill in the gaps" so to speak in the relationship. My wife is a real gem, but she doesn't snowboard or ski. She does love the outdoors, so we have opportunities to share that 3 seasons. She gardens, my definition of yard work involves a weedeater and a mower. I'd pave it all if I was single. We are the checks and balances for each other. We are not the same, or identical in our interests. We do share the same faith and hope, and that is very important, too. That is how I see "complements". I also want to say something about love. As used by the average person today, it covers a whole lotta territory. I think the Greeks had the best idea. They used three words for love, eros for physical attraction, phileo (sp?) for brotherly type feelings, and agapeo for principled self-sacrificing love, which is based on doing the best for someone even if they do not deserve it. Most relationships lack this basic principle of looking out for the other person, even if it wont benifit you, at least at first. Everyone changes as they go through life, and without some self-sacrifice, a relationship will fail
