Have you ever wondered why men and women can seem worlds apart when emotions are at play? Are the sexes really that different emotionally or is it simply that two different human beings are THAT different? We’re sharing behind the scenes of our marriage and the emotional divide we navigate from time to time. Things like – what happens when Misty interrogates Randy about what he is thinking, what movie opens a floodgate of tears for Randy, and how Misty knows when Randy is really angry. We discuss recent scientific research on the differences between the brains of women and men, and the possibility of a spectrum of emotional expression and intelligence. Ultimately, the emotional divide is real. But it’s not quite all about men vs. women. If we want better communication and stronger relationships, we need to figure out how to bridge that divide.
