    How do different tastes in music affect relationships?

    I love this question. If you're deeply passionate about music like me, You'll love to go to shows of your favorite bands/ artists. Your partner might not like that idea so much. Also, you might talk about new news of those bands/ artists a lot, and your partner might get annoyed. EX: I follow a ton of bands on twitter and their websites. If anything new and exciting pops up, I get so excited. My boyfriend doesn't mind but some might get tired of the topic, or may even think their partner is more concerned about those musicians then their relationship. Another big situation is if you find musicians attractive and your partner gets jealous! Another one is listening to 2 different styles. Whether in the car, home cooking, going to a concert, if both people aren't satisfied with the other;s choice, conflicts can form!

    I think when you first meet someone, you share info about your musical tastes and even agree to listen to some of it in the name of developing the relationship. 

    Me and my husband had very different taste in music when we met but over the years we've come to like some of one another's musical tastes; I think your tastes shift as you get older.  I still can't listen to some of his stuff (he loves blues music, I don't), but I have come round to other stuff.  I listen to a lot of indie, house, techno and shoe gazing and he never listens to any of that but I did introduce him to Coldplay, Embrace, Feist, Amy McDonald and Adele among others.

    If you end up living together, expect a noisy home. haha Seriously though, one should give way to what the other wants. True love is not selfish. As you listen to your partner's favorite genre, you'll eventually get used to it and might even like it more than the music you're hooked into prior the relationship.

    It does not much affect the relationship as long as you love each other. But it is also good to share your interest with your partner.

    I think it make a relationship so much more full as long as both can compromise and take interest in the other's taste.
