Men are Like Waffles, Women are Like Spaghetti

farrelsToday was a special day because we got to attend a “Men are Like Waffles, Women are Like Spaghetti” marriage seminar with bestselling authors, Bill and Pam Farrel. 

This was not about eating actually waffles and spaghetti, so I can easily blog about it here – ha!  Men are like waffles because they tend to see life in compartments; being in one box at a time.  For instance, when a man is at work, he is…at work.

A woman on the other hand processes life like a plate of noodles.  (Maybe this is why pasta is such a problem with us when we’re trying to lose weight!)  Looking at spaghetti, each noodle touches another.  So we go through life making emotional connections.  When we’re at work, we’re not just at work like the men.  We’re thinking of the laundry, shopping for Christmas presents, wondering why our friend was so short at lunch, and wondering what to wear that doesn’t make us look fat. 

If you want to have better communication with your spouse, I would highly recommend books by Bill and Pam Farrel like Men are Like Waffles, Women are Like Spaghetti and also Red Hot Monogamy. 

Bill and Pam Farrel (pictured here on the left with my husband and me on the right) have blessed so many couples with hope for the future.  And isn’t that the important ingredient, whether you’re losing weight, saving your marriage, or making a good marriage great? 

So take heart this week and know that the best days are ahead for your marriage!  And if you need some help to believe that’s true, please pick up a copy of the Farrels’ book for yourself!
