TikTok Couple From Mixed Social Classes Demonstrate 10 Differences In Their Daily Habits

They say the opposites attract. But do they really work out in the long run? Do you genuinely have to have many things in common with your partner to have a happy long-term relationship? Some say yes, some say no. It’s a highly debatable topic. Nevertheless, it always helps to have something in common with your partner, whether a shared hobby, similar taste in food, or an undeniable love for dogs.

As long as you share the same core values and put mutual effort into a relationship, that’s all you pretty much need. It’s also a different story whether your star signs are compatible, but we are not going to get into astrology.

TikTok couple Michaela and Alex shared how their upbringing in different economic classes made the pair approach and do things quite differently. Michaela, as she claims, grew up in poverty. In contrast, her partner, Alex, grew up in the upper-class, and using that as a factor, the couple shared some contrasting habits the two of them have.

Michaela and Alex posted a series of videos on TikTok to bring up and appreciate these differences. Many people were relieved to see that it was entirely possible to have a successful and happy relationship coming from different social backgrounds.

Michaela keeps everything from every takeout restaurant we’ve ever ordered from. There’s a whole drawer full of this stuff. She also keeps all of our gift bags which is great for holidays, birthdays, gift-giving, making it a lot easier.

When eating a meal, I always finished my plate because I was not allowed to leave the table until I finished my plate and was told I was wasteful, if I didn’t. My husband will eat until he’s full like a regular human.

Alex is good at picking up but he’s not as good at cleaning because he always had to pick up for the cleaning service that he had his whole life. I’m better at cleaning because if I wanted something to be clean, I had to do it myself, but I am just naturally messier than he is.

I have a collection of jars in case I can reuse them. I was taught to never throw anything away. And Alex will throw away or recycle stuff when he’s done with it.

I like to finish all of our leftovers. Michaela will not finish the last of anything in the fridge. This is a byproduct of her growing up with food insecurity and not necessarily knowing where her next meal will come from.

Alex grew up with only purebred poodles as his dogs. My childhood dog was a mutt from the pound. But together we adopted this pitbull mix from the county shelter in Atlanta.

I keep all of my receipts in case there’s something wrong with something that I bought and have to return it. Alex doesn’t keep receipts because if there’s something wrong with what he bought, he’ll just buy another one.

Every time I leave a room and leave the light switch on, she will turn it off. Even if I’m going right back into that room a minute later.

We are 26 and Alex has never bought a car, laptop, or cellphone himself. And I have purchased every car, laptop, and cellphone that I’ve ever owned.

When grocery shopping, Alex would always get the name brand. I had to teach him that store brand is just as good with a few notable exceptions.

A lot of viewers could relate to Michaela’s hardships and observations highlighted in their TikToks

“I Was Baffled”: Argument Arises When Friends Said This Man Can’t Take His 5 Y.O. Daughter Fishing With Them

What were the rules you had with your friends when you were growing up? Maybe the first one to get married would treat the rest? Maybe the rule was everyone should attend each other’s grand celebrations like graduation ceremonies, marriages, or birthdays!

It wasn’t much different than when Reddit user DaddynDaughterfish and his friends were young. Their rule was simple: every year, they would hold a fishing trip only for themselves. No wives, no girlfriends. The day would only be for them.

Though, sometimes, loopholes can be made in the rules. And it was shown when one of his friends, “Tim”, brought his son to the fishing day. This brought confusion to the friends, but they let it slide because after all, Tim did not bring a wife or a girlfriend. Also, Tim stated that he wanted to pass down their tradition to the next generation.

After some years, OP decided to bring his daughter who was around the same age as Tim’s son. A heated discussion ensued when his friends didn’t allow him to because it was “against the rule.” The confused OP brought this story to the Am I The A-Hole subreddit.

However, when it was OP’s turn to bring his child, he wasn’t allowed to because it “breaks the rule”

The story received some confused reactions from the online community. But it appears that the final verdict is that the OP did not break their rule
