Focus executive director of Marriage and Family Formation, Greg Smalley, along with his wife, Erin, who also works at Focus, share today in a light-hearted manner about common gender differences in marriage and how they have played out in their own marriage. They talk a bit about the classic animal personality chart, i.e., the lion, otter, beaver, Golden Retriever and how both the husband’s and the wife’s personality impact the marriage relationship. Greg and Erin describe marriage as being like paddling a canoe together; you have to work as a team to stay afloat and reach your destination. The Smalleys encourage couples to see what’s right, versus what’s wrong in their spouse and to embrace each other’s differences.
