My husband grew up on a farm. He likes the peace and quiet of a country setting, a house with lots of land where there's privacy, doesn't care about having expensive things and prefers a simpler lifestyle. He is a "Country Mouse." I grew up in the city. I'm happiest when I'm in a fast-paced, energetic environment, surrounded by people, dressed up and going out. I wouldn't mind living in an apartment in NYC, which he would never, ever do. I am a "City Mouse." BTW, it's one of Aesop's Fables.
