In my three decades of counseling and ministering to married couples, mostly Icouples whose marriages are in distress, I have learned that there are principles that are peculiar to each marriage. Couples may not be different from each other but no two marriages can be said to be operated or managed in similar ways. The reason for these differences is found in the fact that our DNAs are different from each other. Since we are not the same, we are not expected to relate to events, issues and people the same ways. In spite of all these genetic differences, I have observed that there are common needs most men and women bring to a marriage in order to make the marriage the best it can be. We may use different terms, but the needs remain relatively similar. I have also learned in addressing issues of relationships and marriages, the first thing to understand is the needs of your partner.
