Ever catch your man’s eyes wander as the woman with the low-cut blouse with the lacy bra peeking out walks by?
Does your son suddenly stop what he’s doing and stare at the TV screen when a certain fast food burger commercial with the seductive women comes on the screen?
Sometimes this leaves us feeling hurt or angry. Some want to say men are pigs or perverts.
What if you found out that science has shown that men’s brains are physically different than women’s making it hard for us to understand the draw they have to certain visual stimulation? That the first initial reaction to the stimulation is an involuntary reflex?
Kathi talks with Shaunti Feldhahn about her book Through a Man’s Eyes: Helping Women Understand the Visual Nature of Men. While is the full responsibility of men to make the right choices, it is also time to let women in on what that truly entails, and how to be “empathetic without endorsing.” Through compassion and candor, women can finally learn what guys have long wished they knew, but had no idea how to explain—and then see the amazing difference it makes in their relationships.
Listen to this amazing episode as we work to understand our men in order to have a better marriage.
