Do you Dress Like Your Spouse, Boyfriend or Girlfriend?

I saw this picture the other day and it made me laugh to myself.  Mostly because my husband and I have such different senses of style/fashion.  Um, more like my husband could care less about fashion or ANY kind of style.  Jeans or shorts, a 5 year old t-shirt and shoes.....any kind of shoes (flip flops, sneakers, etc.) are fine with him.  He came from a humble family of 8 kids and grew up in a small town in Wyoming.   Fashion and style were the last things on this families mind.  Needless to say, I didn't marry Duane for his sense of style but he has many other wonderful characteristics that make up for his lack of fashion sense.

This picture was taken almost 2 years ago but it's the only one of us both together that's on our new computer.  That little baby will be 2 years old next month. I guess it's time to take a new family pic!

Duane and his girls.  When we go to church, as on this day where my family is being pictured.  I help him with his clothes.  He doesn't seem to mind too much.

Here's my 2 sisters, me (on far right) and our 90 year old grandmother.  My sister Tiffany on the far left and her husband have very similar fashion sense.....and they both have good taste.  Courtney, with the darker hair on the right side of my grandmother, has good fashion sense when she thinks about it.  The same for her husband.  But I just don't think it's as important to her or her husband.  But when they try, they both look good.

When you get right down to it, does fashion sense really matter?  How important is it to you?  Has your spouse or significant other ever embarrassed you with the way they dressed?  I suppose everyone is different and has different priorities.  Truly, I try to keep matters such as this in perspective and remember that in the big realm of life and everything that we deal with, that the way we dress shouldn't matter too much.   Why is it then that when I wake up the next morning and I see Duane with this bright orange (Wal-mart) t-shirt on and shorts, that this bright orange t-shirt really bugs me?  He knows it bugs me too, but he doesn't care.  What else can I do...........but laugh.
