You know what old wives' tales say: opposites attract. So if you find yourself in a relationship with an extrovert when you're an introvert, or vice versa, then you're well-aware of all the benefits that come with having a partner who's the yin to your yang. And while it's no secret that agreeing on a restaurant to eat at — or whether to even go out to eat at all — can take a little longer for you compared to other couples, guess what? Partners who decide to have kids are in luck because, according to Jennifer Kahnweiler, PhD, a public speaker and author of The Introverted Leader and The Genius of Opposites, there is a multitude of pros for children who are raised by one parent who's an introvert and another who falls directly into the extrovert category.
