A second consideration is simply that there are major differences in how men are in relationships compared to how women are. Women generally donít understand men because men donít act like women and similarly, men donít understand women because they donít act like men. And since a woman has never been a man and a man has never been a woman, how does each learn about these important differences? John Gray researched and wrote about these issues in his book, Men are from Mars; Women are from Venus. But I would say that majority of people in relationships donít take time to learn about these gender differences. It is easier to point a finger and blame other person for his or her ďirrationalĒ behavior.
As mentioned earlier, a third area of growth is learning how to manage conflict. There are time proven methods for resolving conflict that we donít learn in school or from a book. There are ways to actually hear each other in relationships. By placing relationship FIRST in importance, these methods can be implemented by couples to greatly improve their satisfaction.
There is so much to learn about satisfying relationships that your parents never showed you. Please donít become one of statistics of divorce or perhaps worse, stay in a miserable relationship to honor your marriage vows while having so many regrets about your life as time ticks away.
