Communication struggles between Venus and Mars

Last updated 3 weeks ago by Michael Darmanin

The one struggle in any type of marriage: communication. Women are known for multitasking and always ready for a conversation while men take time in thinking before executing. Mark Gungor addressed the marriage issues in a hilarious seminar called “Tail of two brains” (which you could find on YouTube).

Why does he do that?

According to Mark Gungor our female brains are different from the male. We just don’t realize this at all! Before you accuse your wife of not caring about you, give her space to process (as we do need that at times). Same thing for you ladies! Don’t doubt your man. Invest time in understanding how his brain works instead.

We all know the famous question: “Why does he/she do that!” Right? One of the proverbs he used to explain marriage, in a nutshell, is: “Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean, but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox”. There is no such thing as a perfect marriage and surely no marriage without trouble. According to Mark a married couple is usually happier than single people. Also statistically speaking married men live longer.

Venus versus mars

Men and women are different. We think differently, we act differently, we even love differently (as mentioned before). We always have at least one person in our lives making us doubt marriage. The very famous sayings they use are; “don’t get married if you are not ready! Not before your 30’s, forget if you did not have enough education or life experience”. All those statements are myths. You can’t prepare for marriage until you are actually married. Marriage is a blind trial. You’re into it with all of your heart, body, soul and totally prepared to receive what you give.

Men happen to have different boxes in their brain; one for their cars (yeah cars are always the most important one), one for their money, one for their wife (imagine if they are Arabs having different wives), one for their kids and not to forget one for their mother in law. As men are known for single tasking, they can only discuss one topic at a time. So don’t try to discuss the kids and the house renovation during one day (or even one conversation).

Different brains

Women’s brains are completely the opposite. First of all, we are known to be emotional due to our brain cells being a web of connections. We take our feelings into consideration and we usually expect that our other half does the same. However and unfortunately, men don’t work that way. It’s not that they neglect your feelings, they just have no idea what is going on in your mind. Also, they simply do not care (sorry guys let’s be realistic). He doesn’t even recall the argument you started about one hour earlier. The one thing men love to do the most is not to think. They actually could spend hours doing exactly that and they would have the best time of their lives. We as women can’t stop thinking. We do so much of thinking to the point of stress. When we reach this point, we usually want to talk about it. Men do not want to think or talk about it, they want to fix it. While we just want a listening ear.

so guys, please give your wife your whole hearted romance. She loves for who you are so, it the least she deserves.
