1st week of November

Last week, the focus of class was on intimacy. What I thought was interesting was how intimacy needs are different between men and women. This meaning that when it comes to a man, his sexual needs have to be fulfilled before he feels emotionally intimate. With a woman it is exact opposite. I also learned that there is a lot of conflict when it comes to marriage because of this fact. It was evident to me that this conflict comes from not understanding how their spouses work. We were asked the question, "Why would God ever make man and woman work this way?" The answer is simple, yet profound; because man and woman have to work together and rely on each other in order to fully have their emotional and physical needs fulfilled. I found importance in this because what majorly wedges couples together has divinely been designed to make them one and bring them together. It is only through understanding and faith that we can save marriages through working together to become one.
