My soon-to-be wife and I bought a house. As we looked at the house, she was thinking of the color of the furniture that would match the color of the walls and something else that would accent the backsplash of the kitchen. She sees a home, while I’m thinking “Man, this wall will be great for the big screen TV!” Or “Wow, what a nice size garage. My tools will fit nicely along this wall.”
Women like the touching, hugging, and flowers. Men can usually forego those things. As long as there is food and a roof, we are good! We just need to remember we are wired differently and that it is a union of these differences that makes for a strong relationship, not the “I need him to be more like this,” or “I need her to be more like that.” Rather, it should be “we are different and, in this difference, we will be strong individually and even stronger together.”
And, no, we will not be shacking up before our marriage next month. My fiancée will move in first and prepare the house for those attending our wedding. I will be staying at a friend’s house until that day we take our vows. I’m doing it right because I am a gentleman first!
