The world we live in is full of unforgiving inequality. All creatures are being categorized into different categories. Even animals are often intrinsically divided into groups according to their abilities to run, sense approaching danger, and avoid it. And each group will possess different habits. We as we are, men and women, are indeed different. We are different -- in our habits and in the way we act to environmental stimuli and the way we spend our leisure time; and we are especially different when it comes to our attitudes regarding relationships. My personal observations have uncovered many significant differences between men and women.
Men usually enter a relationship or marriage expecting their mate or lover to be a playmate and share their recreational interests. Women enter a relationship or marriage hoping to find a loyal best friend. Men want a recreational companion. Women want a loyal companion. Men need recreation in order to relax. Women need loyalty in order to feel secure. Both need their own interests but they also need interests that overlap. They need playtime together. Both need their own space and privacy but they also need to come together and support each other. He needs a lot of recreational time together. She needs the support and loyalty that makes her feels secure. When a woman usually goes her way while a man usually goes his way, the "ways" often part. When he does not support her, she may look for security elsewhere. When she doesn't act as a recreational companion, he may look for a playmate elsewhere. A marriage relationship must meet the needs of both the man and the woman.
There is a saying, which goes, "Men will do anything for sex, even love. Women will do anything for love, even sex." For men, being sexually active is being alive and fulfilled. It confirms their masculinity and raises their self-esteem. For women, being hugged, touched, and caressed is often much more important than sex.
