Here’s Why Men And Women Don’t See Eye To Eye

by Craig Gross on September 27th, 2016 in Favorites, The Haps, Men, Women, Couples, Spouses

xxxchurch-heres-why-men-and-women-dont-see-eye-to-eyeAs men and women our goal is to make our relationships with each other (especially marriages) as enriching as possible.

But a common challenge we all face in making that happen is a mutual lack of understanding about how each other views and processes the world around us.

This is why you probably have heard the saying, “Men are from Mars and women are from Venus.”

The way men and women see the world impacts everything they do.

It impacts their communication.
It impacts how they deal with conflict.
It impacts how they handle stress and temptation.

Your relationships are incredibly valuable so it’s critical you understand each other. 

Watch this video from a recent talk I gave with my friend, co-author of the book Through A Man’s Eyes, and researcher Shaunti Feldhahn.

In this video we specifically talk about how men process their world visually and the unique temptations they face at the hands of a hyper-sexualized culture.

Please STOP and invest 40 minutes in your relationship by watching this video.

You’ll be encouraged AND pick up some very subtle yet brilliant insight.

    Really well done. I am so thankful I can forward this to many men and women who care about this issue. Thanks to you two for your wonderful ministry!

  • Wondering

    This is well done but seems very general .. what is actually the appropriate boundary for a Christian married man? A quick double take? An extended ‘watching’ someone walk by and away? A 4th and 5th glance while trying to not look like you are looking? A long look with no inappropriate sexual thinking but just appreciation of a good figure? And then do the boundaries of appropriate noticing change if the woman is appropriately or inappropriately dressed (i.e. at a beach with a thong bikini..) It is well known that men are visual but how far can that be used as an excuse for more than just noticing but watching for more than a 2nd, 3rd, etc look.. Many women, young and old, are struggling with how this makes them feel and are told that as long as there is no contact but just ‘appreciation’ for beauty or a good figure it is all ‘normal’ male behaviour. Like what was mentioned, there is a bombarding of visual stimulation so more clarification and stronger boundaries for different situations perhaps might need to be discussed or shared..

    I am right there with you, Wondering! One short glance could be too much also. Since a glance is all it takes to put an image or thought in a person’s mind.
    But when men linger or keep looking back for the “other women” that is when it becomes lustful too.

    Yes men are visual but where exactly in the Bible does it say that? Yes the Bible translates words or verses can be interpreted many way. But sin is sin and I am tired of people saying, it’s okay for one glance… When in fact that one glance could snowball.

    • Alicia Rose Williams

      Exactly.
