People are different. They see the world differently. They have different expectations. They have different experiences.
Men and women are even more different. We were created with different strengths and weakness. We are supposed to see the world differently.
Because of these differences, we can’t expect others to be able to read our minds.
Love is not the ability to know what our spouse is thinking without asking; love is taking the time, asking, listening, and acting in response to what our spouse tells us.
Because we can’t read each other’s minds, we must:
Take each other’s words at face value
Assume we don’t know what the other is thinking
Be understanding when we get it wrong
