Male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27, KJV
In one of my relationship conferences, I asked the couples a question about the romantic differences between men and women. I said to them: Let me begin by asking you all a simple question: “How do you truly romance a woman?”
Their Answer: “Wine her, dine her, call her, cuddle her, surprise her, compliment her hair, shop with her, listen to her talk, buy gifts, hold her hand, write love letters, and be willing to go to the end of the earth and back again for her.” I could go along with that.
But when i asked the same question the other way to these couples—“How do you truly romance a man?”—their answer was much more brief and to the point. Their Answer: Bring food and arrive naked.” Ahhh … men!
In a sense, they are right. The blending of our romantic differences is similar to how you make a good salad dressing. Oil and vinegar are about as dissimilar as condiments get. The only thing they have in common is that they are liquids.
Other than that, they’re night and day. Oil is smooth; vinegar is sharp. Oil is thick; vinegar is thin. Left alone in the same bottle, the two will always migrate to opposite ends and remain there forever—unless shaken.
Interestingly, however, even after the bottle has been shaken, the two ingredients retain their unique identities. And yet they complement each other in a savory unity. Together, they serve as a zesty finish to an otherwise bland mix of lettuces.
And so it is in marriage. No matter how many times a husband and wife come together, they always remain unique. He will always think like a man; and she, like a woman. And although their innate design will never change, they can better under-stand each other and move to love one another with compassion, knowing that in so doing, they create a savory blend of romantic intrigue. God bless you
