In your opinion, do you understand the opposite sex?

March 28, 2018

We are all born with a given gender. It’s no secret that men and women are very different from each other by their behavior, habits, a frame of reference. Studies of psychologists have shown that in the presence of other people these differences are manifested with double strength. First of all, this is because we are accustomed to playing certain roles, that is, the roles of man and the roles of woman. As Shakespeare aptly said, “All the world is a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” 

In this regard, each of us at least once in a lifetime has been faced with a misunderstanding of the opposite sex. The phrases that we are from different planets and a man and a woman will never agree on surprise no one anymore. 

Sure, it’s not easy to understand another person, and if this person is of another gender, it is even more difficult. Men and women have different psychology, different world perceptions and feelings about the things around. All well-known psychoanalyst Z. Freud died without knowing the answer to one question, “What do women want?” 

Yet, men are also “mysterious” creatures. And women cannot understand why does he love but does not talk about it? What prevents him from treating me with friends the same way as when we’re alone? If you, after reading this question, smiled and said, “Yes, I understand the opposite sex well,” then you are one of those happy people who are rarely frustrated by the misunderstanding of this or that action of the opposite sex. 

So, in your opinion, do you understand the opposite sex?

  • 1. Yes, quite well, I understand people well, including people of other sex
  • 2. 50/50, depends on the concrete person and our relationships
  • 3. No, I do not usually understand the logic of the actions and words of the opposite sex
  • 4. Difficult to say

How do you feel about remarrying?

March 27, 2018

All married couples, starting a common life, hope to live it happily for a long time. But this is not the case for everyone. According to statistics, 40% of marriages end up in divorce. 

After some time, when the divorce process is in the past and passions subsist, a significant number of people are beginning to think about the possibility of remarriage. Such thoughts are absolutely normal since people seek happiness. If the first marriage did not succeed, then you should neither despair nor assume that life is over. 

Some believe that remarriage is an excellent opportunity to build a family life. Perhaps this attempt is not so emotional and romantic, but it is more insured against the surprises and mistakes of the youth. Just recall, how often you’ve said to yourself: “If only I knew then…” Now you know – and you have the opportunity not to repeat the past mistakes. 

Remarriage usually starts from the assessment of the personality rather than from strong emotions, love grows over the years, and this process requires patience and effort. For some, remarriage is another attempt to become happy, while others, for whatever reason, are negative and somewhat skeptical about remarrying.

So, what do you think about remarrying?

  • 1. I support it; this is a chance to be happy and build a life with the person you love
  • 2. I have nothing against it, but only if partners understand the mistakes of the past and aren’t going to repeat them in the new marriage
  • 3. I do not support it; the marriage must be concluded only once in a lifetime
  • 4. I don’t support it because I see no sense in it; if a person wasn’t able to cope with problems in one marriage, they unlikely to succeed in the next one
  • 5. I'm against marriage in general

What do you think about childfree attitudes?

Childfree life is a vital position characterized by a conscious reluctance to have children. Nowadays, the childfree movement is increasingly spreading around the world, triggering a wave of discussions in various segments of society. 

It is important not to confuse childfree and child-hate, that is, hatred of children. Childfree people do not feel the hatred of children, but simply don’t want to have kids, for one reason or another. 

Among the most common reasons for reluctance to have children, there may be a lack of compelling reasons for having children, unwillingness to spend time and sacrifice personal space, satisfaction with pets and watching the children of relatives or friends. 

Some scholars are convinced that childfree is less socially convenient since such people are more likely to be selfish and individualists. Religious figures are the most active opponents of the childfree. In general, church ministers approach the subject of childfree with the same demeanor as to homosexuals or same-sex marriages. 

Active childfree believe that they are also subject to political discrimination because families with children have tax breaks and enjoy lighter norms of labor law. Modern society still often condemns women who do not want to have children, because historically it has always been believed that the main purpose of women is to give birth to children and to bring up the offspring. 

The situation is changing, but slowly. Instead, childfree appreciate their freedom the most. They are convinced that no person or institution has the right to prohibit them from making decisions about having or not having the own kids. Also, childfree is not something drugs- or murder-related but a legitimate feature – and no-one can sanction you if you decide to choose this way of life. 

What do you think about childfree attitudes?

 

  • 1. I support it
  • 2. I have nothing against it, but I am not one of these people
  • 3. I don’t support it, if a person is able to give birth, then she should do so
  • 4. Difficult to say
