Why are there many broken homes in the society today? Why is it that people are no longer trusted in their relationships, Men and Women don't trust themselves. Why is it that love and romance dies away only months into the marriage. What is it that we are both doing that hinders the growth of our marriages?
In reading this book (Fascinating Womanhood), I have learnt this: "there are just two simple things women and men need for their relationships to work. listen to this " the center of a woman's happiness in marriage is to be loved, but the center of a man's is to be admired" Fascinating Womanhood by Helen Andelin.
This struck me as very surprising. that means things we bother ourselves with are only secondary in respect to the simple rule. If men and woman both put this rule to practice, the world will be a better place, don't you think? Relationships will last longer. Healthy, beautiful, confident children will be brought into this world.
Notez bien: it doesn't take anything to be the fool sometimes, especially in marriage. Its doesn't take anything to be the first to say sorry. It doesn't take anything to just admire the other person, despite their faults. It doesn't take anything to love. You are not less of a man, or a slave if you do all of the above and abide by the simple rule that men love to be admired, women just want to be loved.
Food for thought: Make the first move in improving your relationship.
Don't forget the simple rule:
Admire your man,
Love your woman.
