They really are. They don’t have a clue as to what goes on down here on earth 😀
Oh, ahem, sorry. On Venus.
I finally started to read the book, as per my hubby’s requests. He seemed to be the relationship guru when we got married — he knew what to say, what to do, and when. What shocked me most, probably, was that he knew how to react to tears. 🙂 I thought tears freaked out all guys, but not Azeem! Later on, when I asked him how he knew, he said that he read up on it. So for all those brothers out there married, single, about to get married, still looking — READ! Your wife will appreciate it.
One of the books which helped him was the oh so famous Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. Even though we’ve been married almost 4 years, I have just recently heeded his begging me to read the book.
So inshaAllah I’ll be putting up a short series on the amazing bits of advice I got from the book (hopefully without too much input on my part 😀 ) If you can, READ THE BOOK. I’m just putting this up in hopes of getting others to read and also to get brownie points from the hubby (I’m only half-kidding :P)
As you can guess from the title, this book is all about how men and women are from different planets 😉 That should not have a negative connotation in our minds, though. We can be different without one being better than the other or one being victimized by the other. We’re just different; Allah made us that way! We are different in many aspects – from the way we communicate, to the way we think, feel, perceive, react, love, appreciate….
We shouldn’t try to resist or change our differences; just understand that they are.
Problems are inevitable in relationships. It’s not like it’s always going to be hearts and butterflies (unless you’re a newly wed… 😛 ) It’s easy to love someone when everything is going smooth. When there is tension in your relationship, it’s truly tried. How we deal with our arguements and problems is what will either enrich our relatonships or ruin them. This book will help us understand the opposite gender and give practical tips on how to deal with situations.
