His and her reactions to danger

in Understanding Her

Scientist have found evidence that men and women respond differently to things like danger and anger. Men’s brains show activity in the area associated with the “fight or flight response”, while women show activity in the pain and pleasure areas of the brain.  This would seem to mean men react ready to act – to attack/defend or to flee, while woman tend to react on an emotional level.

What does this mean for us as husbands?  I think it means we need to give our brides a break when they react with tears or fear – they are doing what God designed them to do, just as we are doing what God designed us to do.

This is yet another great piece of info. I had never thought about this 'til now. Another reason to contribute, even a couple bucks, to this blog!
