Of like natured individuals

It is said in the Quran:

It is He Who created you from a single person, and made his mate of like nature in order that he might dwell with her in love...(7:189)

I stumbled upon the abovesaid quote as I was researching (read: punching keywords on Google) for materials for my article. I'm in the midst of writing an article for the school magazine on Rights of a Husband and a Wife. Since I'm a guy, I've been informed to write only on the wife's right. I've found materials to talk about the wife's right after marriage(read: Divorce). But what about their rights DURING marriage? Sometimes love blinds us so much that we tend to overlook these things. But I digress.

The moment I read "like nature", I realized that perhaps, it's about time I abandon the fairytaleistic idea that opposite attracts. Perhaps, it's time I be on the look out for someone who is somewhat like me. Perhaps too, I should forget what they say about how boring life will be if you're with someone just like you. I believe that when you put 2 people of like nature together, even the mundane like staring out the window of a moving bus can be fun.
