You need space – just don’t use those words

Its the opinion of an article’s author that men & women need space. They should:

  • acknowledge and plan for it in specific terms,
  • should disclose the specifics about what they do during such time,
  • will have differing space needs based on childhood nurturing styles, should keep such time to an “as needed” max.,
  • must realize if such time is not planned for it will be taken in a physical and/or emotionally offensive way creating counter productive distance,
  • women need space more oft then men,
  • and expect to reap rewards because of time for refreshment !

Here’s the WSJ article.

Naturally, any human advice must be filtered with scripture. Here’s some ideas, what would you ad ?

  • “…But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15 (a good place to start )
  • “…Do not withhold yourselves from each other unless you agree to do so just for a set time, in order to devote yourselves to prayer.” 1 Corinthians 7:5
