Winning with the opposite sex!
Since 1976, I have been in an unusual position to witness significant changes in our expectations as men and women living and loving together.
Over the many years, my consultancy Yvonne Allen and Associates has assisted thousands of discerning men and women to achieve their relationship goals.
However the challenges are different and more daunting as is evidenced by the observations and statistics such as…
“These days we can no longer assume we will marry and have children. Recent census statistics suggest that by 2020 up to 25% of households in Australia will be occupied by women on their own. The good news is that to live singly is now regarded as an acceptable lifestyle – and is indeed a preferable option for many.
However, whereas in 1976 it was unusual not be married by 30, today an ever increasing number of the singles in their 40’s and 50’s who are partner seeking have not had a significant relationship let alone a marriage.
For women who wanted to have a family but are no longer able to have children, this can cause a huge sense of loss and disappointment.”
“It is no wonder that many a single who would like to have a partner will say that they are wary of ‘commitment’. Those who formally commit to their relationship do so knowing that there is about a 50% likelihood of their union ending in divorce.
They are aware that for many, marriage is no longer likely to be ‘until death us do part’. ”
I believe that the time has come to look at the reasons why relationships between men and women have become so seemingly fraught….and ways that we can enjoy the benefits that living and loving together can bring to our lives.
It would seem to me that in our world of today, that building bridges of understanding between the sexes is key to creating and sustaining stellar relationships, be this in our personal lives or the workplace.
Recent research into gender differences gives me hope that we can stem the tide that is leaving so many men and women alone when they would prefer to be in a great partnership.
