A Couple Who Grew Up In Different Economic Classes Compare Their Habits In These Viral TikToks

Moving in together with your partner is said to be one of the greatest joys in life. Not only do you get to start each day with your soulmate by your side, but you also get to learn all their quirks — however annoying they may be.

In Michaela‘s and Alex‘s case, the couple quickly noticed that besides some occasional snoring or contrasting spending habits, their upbringing in different economic classes made the pair appreciate and do things quite differently.

To celebrate these differences, the couple shared their contradicting habits on TikTok in a three-part series that has been viewed almost 9 million times.

After noticing the differences in their habits, this couple released a series of TikToks that captures what it’s like to live with someone who comes from a different social class

I keep all of my receipts in case there’s something wrong with something that I bought and have to return it. Alex doesn’t keep receipts because if there’s something wrong with what he bought, he’ll just buy another one.

Michaela keeps everything from every takeout restaurant we’ve ever ordered from. There’s a whole drawer full of this stuff. She also keeps all of our gift bags which is great for holidays, birthdays, gift-giving, making it a lot easier.

We are 26 and Alex has never bought a car, laptop, or cellphone himself. And I have purchased every car, laptop, and cellphone that I’ve ever owned.

When grocery shopping, Alex would always get the name brand. I had to teach him that store brand is just as good with a few notable exceptions.

When eating a meal, I always finished my plate because I was not allowed to leave the table until I finished my plate and was told I was wasteful, if I didn’t. My husband will eat until he’s full like a regular human.

Alex is good at picking up but he’s not as good at cleaning because he always had to pick up for the cleaning service that he had his whole life. I’m better at cleaning because if I wanted something to be clean, I had to do it myself, but I am just naturally messier than he is.

Every time I leave a room and leave the light switch on, she will turn it off. Even if I’m going right back into that room a minute later.

Alex grew up with only purebred poodles as his dogs. My childhood dog was a mutt from the pound. But together we adopted this pitbull mix from the county shelter in Atlanta.

I have a collection of jars in case I can reuse them. I was taught to never throw anything away. And Alex will throw away or recycle stuff when he’s done with it.

I like to finish all of our leftovers. Michaela will not finish the last of anything in the fridge. This is a byproduct of her growing up with food insecurity and not necessarily knowing where her next meal will come from.
