Boys vs Girls
GOALS IN LIFE
The Rub: Sure, guys and girls mature emotionally at different timelines, but sometimes it feels like he's just being completely irrational when it comes to the goals you're hoping to achieve. You want to get married and have a family a few years after you finish college, while he doesn't believe in marriage. Or you want to volunteer to be a missionary in some far-flung province for a year, while he wants to put up a business with you and disagreements on these issues can cause major headaches.
The Solution: As with issues regarding opinions, this subject is also a very touchy and subjective one. No particular tricks or special techniques are required here – just openness, honestly, and a mature approach and attitude to dealing with problems. Essential as well is the knowledge that, if things really don't work out, you both might be better off with someone else. It will hurt, but it's part of finding who you really are.
