With in the marriage relationship there will always be differences. For we were designed this way. Males communicate non-verbally, are action focused, special oriented and are more capable of protecting. Women empathize by listening and responding, they observe emotions and verbal connections are stronger and more important while there is a focus on relationships between people and things. These natural differences can bring conflict into a marriage because of natural disagreements. Conflict is not always bad, it is an opportunity for husband and wife to grow together and appreciate the differences. Some additional advantages to conflict include: gained respect for different perspectives, creates discomfort which really allows us to grow, and understanding for different spousal experiences.
