Man and Woman

I was browsing and saw these cartoon pictures about man and woman. I'm sure all of you have heard about the topic of man and woman, "Men are from mars, Women are from Venus". The book is so famous and I happened to have read the book so many times. The main idea of the book is about the differences between man and woman. The analogy is like this, far away there's this planet called Mars and all of the citizens are men. And on the other side of the galaxy, there's this planet called Venus and all the women live there. One time through the telescope, a man and woman fell in love and decided to live together in a place called Earth. And so it begins. The adventures of living together begin from there on. They learned that in order for them to live happily together, they must be able to respect each other and also to always continue to learn the behaviours of one another.

I don't like to argue too much about who can take more role in this life as in the role of man and woman. I personally think we live and exist in this world to play our own role based on our capabilities. If woman should be a housewife, be the best housewife. If man should be a leader, be a good leader. And vice versa, if woman capable to be a leader, be a good one and if a man should be a stay-at-home dad, be a good daddy. As long as the role are in the right position and as along as the reason behind it is very reasonable, I don't mind about who's taking what position. And just like I said, whoever it is doing whatever the job is, always give the best effort to your job.

By showing you these pictures, I just want to say that husband should not be afraid of his wife and wife should not be afraid of her husband. I'm not telling you that you can do whatever it is that you want to do regardless your partner's rule. But what I'm trying to say is that, when you have a partner that you care so much, respect is the most important thing between the two of you. Compromise and communication are also important. Furthermore, we have our own personalities and habits to live our life. I think as long as we can have a good way of communication, respect to one another and able to compromise about everything, we will be able to make a very good and happy life with our partner.
