Two humans, but two completely different animals. The truth behind this statement is more real than I think most take the time to discover. Everything about men and women are different. Lots of our differences are so opposite that it can be shocking. But as you take the time to discover the differences it begins to explain so much. You can start making sense out of times that felt like complete MAYHEM! From the way that we listen to the way that we function, is complete opposite. And we wonder why we have hurt feelings and arguments. But there is hope!! You can learn what those differences are and then all of a sudden the learning curve is gone, and YOU UNDERSTAND HIM! And hopefully through time and patience he will learn to understand you as well. It's proven, that men are actually willing to change easier then women. But if a woman makes some positive changes, and learns how a man thinks, works, feels, etc, he will automatically make changes on his own, because he is being understood. It's actually a really remarkable process.
I'm not going to imply that it will be easy. But most things that are worth it are rarely easy. It takes work every single day. But the benefits of putting in the effort are priceless. Marriages will always have its up and downs, because we are human and we have trials. But if you choose to learn and understand how each others systems work, you can prevent so many unnecessary challenges. Like I have said before, if you are not feeling joy and connection in your marriage, it is NEVER TOO LATE!
Pick up a book and start to learn......
