Men Withdraw & Women Criticize

When the spirit of a wife deflates, in most cases she feels unloved. When the spirit of a husband deflates, most often he feels disrespected.

Though we all need love and respect equally, the felt need between men and women differs as pink differs from blue.

In a survey we conducted, we asked 7,000 people this question:
“When in a conflict with your spouse, do you feel unloved at that moment or disrespected?” During conflict, 83% of the husbands said they felt disrespected, whereas 72% of the wives reported that they felt unloved.

Neither is wrong, just different.

So, what is a couple to do?
