Marriage Math

I like solidarity; he likes solitude.
Of course, we like cooperation
When we're both in the mood.
Maybe our extreme differences
Are the secret to our success;
We've needed both our talents
When exposed to life's greatest tests

He is quiet and careful; I'm a rowdy rebel.
We've learned to balance our ways
To keep our relationship level.
He gives; I take,
But not only for myself.
I spread his talents far and wide,
Like his personal Santa's elf.

Every spouse should have such a chore,
Giving that doesn't drain our love;
In fact, it produces more.
Marriage can leave a legacy
Even without producing children
This is possible only when
The two are more than one plus one.
