To be honest, when I'm reading novels I have a hard time keeping all the Korean and Chinese names straight.

No, it doesn't matter at all. Just hypothetically of course. Who came with this poll, Nick Hornby?
I agreed that what really matters is what you like, not what you are like. Books, records, films - these things matter. Call me shallow but it's the fuckin' truth, and by this measure I was having one of the best dates of my life.
The new High Fidelity Hulu adaptation by is mostly good btw.

There are core traits about a persons personality that I feel are a must. So long as they have those traits as a foundation to their personality, I feel it would work out even if we didn't share any interest for each others hobbies. It is nice to be able to share hobbies, but at the same time, it is not deal breaker for me.

I'd say it's more important that they appreciate it rather than if they like it or take an interest in it. Best example I can think of is when my folks had Project Runway or a sports game on. I didn't like the programs, and wouldn't go out of my way to watch them outside of a passing interest, but you can appreciate the work going into it and the process taking place. And, while I'd like my future spouse to appreciate my interests, I'd also want to be able to appreciate her's.

I mean, if he likes anime/manga, great. But if he doesn't, I'd like him to respect the fact that I like it.

Another thing is if it's dub or not. It's weird to hear a name and read another one in the subtitles.
But for this week's poll: No, it doesn't matter at all, as long as she respects what I enjoy. She doesn't need to like it, but she should be someone decent enough to understand everyone likes different things and that's all right.

Also super amused that grigo can't get over how most people want to experience an original story in as close to its original form as possible 🙂 Almost like that's the whole reason we're here on mangaupdates reading manga and not watching anime that were shittily adapted from those manga!
And yes, I *did* learn Japanese for that reason 😛

He probably doesn't like the fact that homogeneous Japan can produce more original material with a wider variety of diverse characters, settings, and views than anyone pushing the racist ideology of Progressivism can.

Seriously. It doesn't matter. It's great if one can share stuff related to hobbies with their significant other, but it's certainly not necessary for a healthy relationship, nor is it a guarantee for one.

The obvious question is why, and he thought it would work, outside of that hobby which did take up a fair amount of space (some of the figures were well made and used as display pieces when not in storage) so once that was done he could have moved on, but it was never just that one thing, it was that his primary function wasn't money and his secondary function wasn't kissing her ass 24/7 and without her he would die.
But, like the dope he was, he didn't file divorce first, he tried to make it work, and at that point you are playing defense (second to file) you are already screwed.
learned 2 things from him, well, 1 thing and reinforced others
1) if they give an ultimatum like demand, walk away, do not take them back, do not reason with them, cut your losses because now that they know this works, it will be the go to threat
2) NEVER be second with filing anything where you have an adversarial relationship. If you think they may file something, make damn sure you are first, collage culture and the me too movement should show that even if you are in the right, saying the story second is almost always a losing position
