Understand the differences God created in the makeup of men and women.
There are a lot of generalizations about the differences in the sexes. Men are from Mars, and women are from Venus. Men are like waffles, and women are like spaghetti. Women are too emotional. All men want is sex. What is the truth? How do you sort through all the information out there and use it to understand your spouse?
If you really want to understand your mate, then you need to begin with understanding how God created men and women and the differences in their makeup. When you understand how and why each of you responds to the world the way you do, you can begin to relate to each other better, as well as develop a deeper appreciation for one another.
