How to Stop Fixing and Start Enjoying Our Spouse

200px-Man-and-woman-icon.svgHusbands and wives everywhere agree that the differences between men and women makes for some very interesting marital discussions.

Gary Morland takes a humorous look at this subject in his post entitled 4 Things My Wife Needs to Remember I Can’t Do (And That Your Man Can’t Do Either)

I hope you’ll take a minute to read it and watch the short video that accompanies it. It’ll make you laugh and it’ll make you think, I think. 🙂

Plus, it’s kind of cool to get the male perspective on a topic that has had women asking for ages, “What’s wrong with my man and how do I fix him?”

Isn’t it ironic that one of the top complaints women have is that, instead of simply listening to their problems, men want to fix them.  But, if we’re honest, isn’t that exactly what we’re trying to do to the men in our lives?

Food for thought…Maybe we should leave the “fixing” of each other up to the Lord and just learn to enjoy our differences.

“Submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.”
Ephesians 5:21

  1. We were just reading in book club about how no one can fill your emptiness, you need to keep that open for God. “I can’t be Jesus for you” reminded me of that.

    Thanks! Gotta remember that 🙂

    Peace in Christ,

  2. I love that observation!! You are so right because I do complain that my husband likes to fix my problems when I really just want him to listen.

    And bingo… you nailed the irony of that one.

    I’m going to click and read the link.
