      I think you're referring to Type B, which characterizes someone who is easy going, and doesn't get stressed.

    Marriage especially... Since there is already a special bond between the both, I think it is crucial to at least be able to tolerate with each other's differences. Tolerance will prevent the couple from pulling each apart as well as the marriage from crumbling. But what's better is acceptance - to accept the differences. Only then the couple will be truly happy together, enjoying common grounds and appreciating differences.

    A and C couples were able to stay together because they had Plan B.

    This is a great question! I'm a type A and my husband is a type C. I think the most important thing is that we respect each other's type....he knows that I go constantly and gives me my space. I know that he likes to take his time and relax and I give him his space. Neither one of us pushes the other. I admit that sometimes it's hard because when I see that something needs to be done, I tend to want it done immediately and my husband always wants to get to it "later"....
    If I can do it myself, I do. So the tough part is when I know I can't do it and must depend on him.....I take a deep breath and know that it will get done "eventually..."
    I admit that it was tough in the beginning but we've both learned to accept one another for our differences and that has made all the difference.

    Ed....I'm more than happy to answer this.  My hubby is 100% Type A.  The jury is still out as to what letter of the alphabet describes my "type."......but suffice it to say, my husband and I are about as opposite from one another as any 2 people can be.   
    We get along simply great and have a close, loving relationship.  We both live and work together, so are together far more often than not. We accept and respect one another, just as we are......and appreciate our differences.  We depend upon one another's strengths and fill in the blanks when necessary. 
    I should correct myself.....because we DO both share a "sense of humor," and keep each other grounded and focused.....Somehow, we've been able to make it all work well.  I keep him leveled out now and then...and he's learned how to keep me on track.
    We work at it, are lucky and HE prays a lot......  I say this quite a bit, "We have a strange and wonderful relationship...he's wonderful..I'm strange.

    My husband and older daughter are type A. My youngest daughter and I are what you describe as C.

    It has worked for 42 years for us.  I tend to be calm when he goes off the chart and can calm him down and anchor him.  If I tend to get nervous or whatever, he will be able to handle whatever it is and calm me down.  Type A's are great, if you want something done...they are the ones who jump in and get it done.

    We are not BORING!  LOL - :-) Well maybe a little.

      I think it can be tough with two type "C's" My easy-going, laid back daughter married a man that is super laid back as well. I don't know how they get anything done!

    Opposites attract! There was obviously a spark, if the two types are married, or thinking of marriage. In relationships, we feed off of each other, we support each other, and love each other. We need balance...Emotionally, Spiritually, and even physically.

    My fiancee is my exact opposite, literally, in every way... but we balance each other out perfectly... even when we want to rip each other's throats out!

    In any relationship there is bound to be stress, it's just a fact of life. My best advice, Talk to each other. I said, TALK, not yell, not fight. This may seem hard, trust me, i'm a yeller, I know how hard it can be to control tempers, but in the end, it's really the only thing that works.
    You can try talking things out one on one, or try seeing a counselor, and see if that helps.
    So far, just by asking for advice, you are making great moves towards improving the relationship!
    Good Luck & Don't give up!

    I'm relieved to see I'm not the only one who doesn't understand this. Never heard of Type A and Type C. I'll be following this and hopefully learn something. Can't wait!
