The secret to winning a woman's heart is found in the pages of God's Word.
Years ago a couple came to us for marriage counseling who were on the verge of divorce. Why? Because the husband continually failed to lower the toilet seat!
Thankfully, we can report that they are happily married today. Generally speaking, however, men really don't understand women. But why?
God created men and women with diversity. He gave them both a need and a desire for one another. But He wired them biologically and psychologically differently. Your failure to understand this will create continual tension and frustration in your relationships.
1 Corinthians 7:3 says, "The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband" (NIV). It is a husband's job to learn God's expectation for him and understand his wife's needs.
In the process, he earns her respect. And just what does a woman respect?
1. A woman respects a man with a sense of humor.
In poll after poll, when asked what they want most in a man, women answer, "A good personality and sense of humor." A woman loves a man who can laugh--and make her laugh. She is impressed with a man who sees the cup as half full, rather than half empty (see Phil. 4:8).
