Opposites Attract

Were you aware that Charles Simonyi is dating Martha Stewart? I wasn't either, it seems like a weird match.

Charles Simonyi was one of the early Microsoft employees, popularized/invented the hungarian notation style of variable naming, and architected Microsoft Word and Excel and a bunch of other applications. Martha Stewart bakes things, demonstrates how to decorate your home, and sells stock illegally.

What do they talk about?

You just pointed out characteristics of two individuals that are both anal-retentive in detail (or perhaps, they have a fine attention to detail and organization, to put it nicely) - seems like a perfect match.

Very true, I hadn't considered that aspect of it. They would have a very well decorated, and orderly house.
