This is an interesting article by Patti Armstrong on some of the changes that have taken place in the past fifty years in male/female relationships. As a mother of boys I can testify that much of this is true. Little boys are wired differently. They think and act differently, and guess what! Little boys grow into men who think and act differently. We have to accept men for the different creatures they are and vice versa. Men and women will never completely peacefully co-exist - our differences are what makes those relationships both rewarding and complicated, but we do need to respect those differences and embrace them.
