So we have been going through the Love and Respect video series. If you haven’t done it, it’s worth taking a look or reading the book. So good.
Here is a couple of pretty unbelievable statistics. 7,000 people were asked this question – yes 7,000! – When you are in conflict with your spouse or significant other, do you feel unloved at that moment or disrespected.
83% of the men said they feel disrespected. 72% of the women said they feel unloved.
Those are some pretty heavy stats! They are important to know, because, while men and women both need love and respect equally, during conflict a wife leans toward love and a husband toward respect.
This continues to show how different men and women are and how we can often be misunderstood.
“God made us male and female. Thus, a husband is not wrong for needing respect, just different from his wife. A wife is not wrong for needing love, just different from her husband. A wise person sees the differences and celebrates them.”
– Emerson Eggerichs
Have a great weekend!
