It’s game time! With football season approaching and fantasy draft beginning, I want to know, do you and your fiance(e) cheer for the same team, or are you fans of different teams? How do you handle football season? Or, are you a football free household?

    I am a cowboys fan who is marrying an eagles fan! Huuuuge rivals. Most of the time we are pretty okay but the twice a year our times play each other we can get kind of competitive haha.

    FH is an Eagles fan and I am a die hard Saints fan - we rarely interact but when we do, it gets ugly. We do go to either Philly or NOLA for the game when they do play each other. This year it's NOLA so for our Mini-moon that's where we are headed! I can't wait to see my boys at home!

    I was never a football fan but very randomly i happened to buy a Detroit Lions hoodie at a second hand store shortly before H and i met. i threw it on one morning early in our relationship and he was like "whoah, amazing shirt!" turns out he is a lifelong, long-suffering Lions fan, haha. that year ended up being a decent season for them and i was like, oh, great, my boyfriend likes a semi-winning team...in the years that have followed, not so much Smiley xd we're Canadian, but we still go down to Detroit for a game once a year when we can swing it. (i always wear my lucky sweatshirt.)

    College football!! I'm a USC alumnus and FH is a UCLA alumnus so we're friendly rivals when it comes to collegiate football. Funny enough, our wedding is a day after the USC UCLA football game! Haha

    We're on the same team.

    When I met my FH, I didn't care about football, so it was easy for me to "switch" teams. By that I mean, it's almost UNHEARD OF for someone from Western PA to NOT be a Steelers fan. My FH hates the Steelers and grew up in a Cleveland Brown household. Sacreligious, I know. When my FH started watching football, he really admired Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, so he became a Baltimore Ravens fan, and the rest of history. It's funny, we can't even openly support them here because they're Steelers' rivals. But it sure makes it interesting! Hahaha.

    I'm a Broncos fan and FH is a Giants fan. We enjoy cheering for both. We also got our two cats when the Manning brothers played for each team; we have two girl cats named Peyton and Eli. Smiley tongue

    I'm a 49ers fan marrying a Patriots fan. We have so much fun teasing each other and we admire some players on each other's teams that we basically support each other and the team choices without having brawls come football season.

    I met my fh in 4th grade. We didn't have a local football team at the time, so I didn't have a team. Hes a lions fan and he told me I should be too because no ones a lions fan lol. So i did. He became a fan because his dad told his sons they could pick any team. He picked lions cause they were his favorite animal lol.

    I’m the football fan in the relationship. FH doesn’t actually care for football too much while I love my Packers! He sometimes likes to watch football but he doesn’t get as into it as I do but he does tend to root for the packers when they’re playing.

    I’m a huge football fan! Cowboys all the way! FH doesn’t really care to much about it!! Lol! So he just asks me questions about it! 😊😊 However, put a car in front of him and he’s all over it! We compromise, he asks me about sports and I ask him how it’s done to fix a car! LOL

    I'm personally not a fan of football lol. My FH likes football, he watches it and stuff but he's not a crazy football fan. He prefers watching soccer or basketball over football.
