Top Tips for Dealing with Sexual Differences

 In Engaged, Marriage, Newlywed, Parenting, Stronger Relationships Trial


Whether or not men really are from Mars and women from Venus, it’s safe to say that for a lot of us, the other sex can be a total mystery. Small and simple stuff, like whether or not the toilet seat goes up or down, or planets-apart type scenarios like approaches to saving and spending, a lot of couples get caught up and bogged down in the things that make us so different.

Here are three things to remember to help you deal with your sexual differences.

1. Opposites attract. Sexual differences are what make relationships so rich. Our sexual differences complement each other, stimulate our attraction and strengthen our bond.

2. Relationships are about teamwork. And it’s always better when team members bring unique and varied skills to the challenges we face. Couples face a lot of challenges from one day to the next as they build a life together, and the differences we bring in our attitudes and personalities are crucial in making us stronger and helping us to rely on each other.

3. It would be boring if we were all the same! Focus on the positives at the heart of your differences. Find ways to use your differences to your advantages – maybe one of you prefers cooking and the other is a neat freak? You can work with that!
